From Andy Adams’ post for Photo-Eye:
The back-to-the-land lifestyle has been heavily documented and “The Return” is a fine addition to photographic study of the topic. Chesser and White immerse themselves in a series of travels with a community of modern nomads and the result is a poetic meditation on the contemporary hunter-gatherer way of life. It’s impossible to imagine living like this but the book is a sound reminder that each of us is part of the broader narrative of environmental and human history. We’d be wise to listen to the basic principles that underscore its subjects’ desire to live like they do, off the grid, in harmony with nature.
