Rainbow Gathering is like alternative to modern world.
Each year Rainbow Family attracts hundreds of thousands of people to spend time in wilderness.
Gatherings each year take place at over 100 locations all over the world,
away from civilization, shops, sanitation, electricity, telephones, Internet, alcohol, drugs, money.
Participants feel deep connection with nature. They wish to live in peace and harmony.
Some of them consider Rainbow as a new form of society.
Spiritually, there is a very strong influence from native Shamanism.
There is no membership, leaders, official spokespersons or any formal structure, everyone is equal.
They live like a tribe.
All decisions are made by mutual consent achieved by discussion in the circle.
Meals are common, and all duties voluntary. Each gathering lasts for a month or longer.
There are also rainbow villages - small societies which try to be self-sufficient, usually hidden in mountains.
I visited one, called Beneficio in Sierra Nevada Mountains in Spain.
Everything may sounds a bit silly or utopian but it actually works.
Each year rainbow gatherings is visited by more and more people.
I photographed people in their favorite places, houses, camps.
Each person is strongly connected with place where the picture was taken.
During three years I visited six countries in four continents: Brazil, Turkey, Sahara desert in Morocco, Finland, Spain - twice, Poland, Ukraine.
I travelled by many ways, a lot by hitch-hiking.
With time photographs of the road I took began writing story in itself.
Road was always very important issue for me.
I wish to visit all continents, and finally make two strongly connected books: about Rainbow and the Road.
