ROWAN RENEE
aka Robyn Renee Hasty

In Homeland, I drove 15,000 miles across the U.S. taking Wet-Plate Collodion portraits of people living off-the-grid. I photographed where people were re-visioning society in the midst of large scale deterioration: in blighted cities like New Orleans and Detroit, in squatted desert communities, on boats moored in industrial canals. This project focuses on the growing social movement of DIY-ers, punks, squatters, and activists who have rejected the luxurious monotony of mainstream society to achieve the independence of self-sustainability.
