Kevin Faingnaert provides a refreshing lifestyle alternative to the urban one many modern societies adhere to. Venturing to a remote ecovillage high up in the isolated mountains of Northwest Spain called Matavenero, he documented the going-ons of a unique community in which materialism does not exist.

Through this once in a lifetime experience, Kevin Faingnaert not only learned about its inhabitants, but also about the sustainable lives they lead. My Modern Met writes, "Each image captures the essence of the Matavenero way of life by showcasing the beauty of Mother Nature from the perspective of these eco-conscious individuals. When observing the unembellished photographs, it is almost as if viewers are taken to a world where nature is allowed to retain its wild and free state of being." It's a beautiful way of life.
