Andrew Waits’s “Boondock” Takes Us Off-The-GridPhotography // Monday, 31 Mar 2014
In photographer Andrew Waits’s series “Boondock”, he photographed throughout the western United States searching for a subculture of individuals and communities that live a nomadic lifestyle whether by choice or necessity brought on by hardship. Waits explores how each subject has redefined their own definition of “home”by creating one in vehicles such as cars, vans, and RVs. The series takes an interesting look into what people choose to keep when a home allows only so much room for personal possessions. “Surveying both urban and remote locations to provide a unique juxtaposition of vehicle, owner, and environment, it explores ways in which survival dictates a fluidity of location, interconnectivity, and the concept of home,”explains Waits.
