Off the Grid: Photographs by Keliy Anderson-Staley

Ahorn Magazine

These Maine houses, photographed beautifully by Keliy Anderson-Staley may not represent high end design, but they are still incredibly inspiring — they are all homes to families living off the grid without electricity (except what is generated by the sun), plumbing or phones.

The artist herself grew up in one of these cabins in Maine and the images document a radically different (at least to us city dwellers) way of life, but one that isn't without its charms. I've certainly dreamed, from time to time, of packing it all up and leaving the modern world for awhile. Anderson-Staley's photographs lovingly portray these families for whom, she says in her statement, “their home is their masterpiece.”
