Photographer Robert Ellis seeks to examine the alternative lifestyle of Ireland's New Line community in his latest series. They say that home is where the heart is, so viewing these images offers tremendous insight into the lives and characters of the people who live there.

Ellis' use of light is masterful, with each photo bathing in a crisp, Autumn glow that transforms even the most unsightly, ramshackle environment into something gleaming with energy and potential. All in all, the photographs are imbued with a sense of tranquility that's hard to achieve in the hum-drum of modern life.

The series is one of 12 that makes up Ellis' 'Where we are,' a project dedicated to contemplating the places and stories of people living in Ireland.
