Living Off the Grid European-Style Photographed by Immo Klink

Living Off the Grid European-Style Photographed by Immo Klink | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Immo Klink has an on-going project about European communities who choose to live differently from the rest of us; namely whose aim is to keep their demands on the environment to a minimum. These extraordinarily inventive structures nestle beautifully in the landscape, some being completely camouflaged.  Immo’s work also lends a fragility to these dwellings, serving as a reminder to us all that we can’t control the elements no matter how great or little our impact is on our environment.

Born Dawid Szymin in Warsaw, Chim (who after WWII published under the name David Seymour) began his career in 1933 photographing for leftist magazines in Paris. In 1936, along with his friends Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, Chim traveled to Spain to photograph the civil war in support of the Republican side, publishing regularly in all the major European and American picture magazines.
