I normally go into my conversations with a set of proven questions to ask, that I find will elicit a wide variety of anecdotes from people’s lives: happiest moment, saddest moment, things like that. But with people fleeing war, it is absolutely impossible to discuss anything beyond the present moment. Their circumstances are so overpowering, there is absolutely zero room in their minds for any other thoughts. The conversation immediately stalls, because any topic of conversation beyond their present despair seems grossly inappropriate. You realize that without physical security, no other layers of the human experience can exist. “All day they do is cry for home,” she told me. (Dohuk, Iraq)

  6. We all have such stories. It is a brutal arithmetic. But I - I am alive. You are alive. As long as we breathe, we can see and hear. As long as we can remember, all those gone before are alive inside us.

    French photographer Antoine Bruy spent three years (2010 - 2013) aimlessly hitchhiking around remote European regions documenting the affairs and lifestyle of former city dwellers turned off-grid families. Antoine offered labor (helping raise livestock, tending to farmlands) in return for housing and an intimate, more in-depth understanding of this largely undocumented subsociety.
