Brice Portolano’s Arctic Love from series No Signal #celebratephotography
My Modern Met recently published this short write up detailing Brice Portolano‘s first installment in the series No Signal which documents individuals who have chosen to live close to nature.
Portolano has documented similar stories of others who have sought to reconnect with themselves by retreating into nature, including a man in Utah who grows all his own food and a cliff diver in France in France. Through his project, the photographer has experienced multiple unique ways of life, as he emerges himself into his subjects’ lifestyles in order to better understand their fascinating stories. Portolano is working towards turning No Signal into a documentary and book upon completing the series.
