2009 Aperture Portfolio Prize winner Keliy Anderson – Staley’s ongoing body of work Off the Grid provides a close look at the daily lives of families living in Maine without electricity, plumbing or phones. Anderson – Staley’s subject’s have rejected these technologies for a range of reasons, from political and environmental concerns to economic necessity, but the lifestyles depicted are all resourceful and inspiring takes on “green” living.
Aperture is pleased to present a new limited edition print from the Off the Grid series entitled Hansons’ Tent at the The Common Ground Fair, Unity Maine, 2008. The print, a photograph of a tent belonging to a family of “off-gridders” is a poignant example of the charm and character of the creative measures taken by Anderson – Staley’s subjects to achieve their minimal environmental impact.
