I am a mother of two babies. I cloth diaper, breastfeed and we do attachment parenting. I try to be as environmentally cautious as I can be with the resources we have today. If only I had a garden available, I would love to live off the land, and grow my own produce, and raise poultry/eggs. In my free time I like to crochet. —Melony, 20, Mother/Student
For Steve Davis’ series Back to the Garden, his only criterion was to photograph people whom self-identify as 21st century hippies. Once he found his subjects, he took sharp, vivid photographs of their features, behind white backgrounds, framed like saints. Despite the individuals’ different backgrounds and occupations, each person was able to connect to the lifestyle and philosophy of a contemporary hippie. Davis’ series rejects the idea that hippie culture is anachronistic and on the other hand, proves that the movement is still very much alive.
Gennadiy works through the political system as an activist, and he runs an orphanage, but the system doesn’t work fast enough for him—or for the thousands of street kids who live in his city of Mariupal, Ukraine, most of whom are addicted to a lethal cocktail of injected cold medicine and alcohol. So at night, he goes on raids for the lost children in the ruins of this empire.
