An ongoing series exploring seasonal social rituals by UK-based photographer Tom Oliver Lucas. Described as a study of “human-environment relationships,” Lines of Flight revolves around the community life and events of a remote village in Sweden where the way of life for local inhabitants is closely connected to the movement of nature and its seasons:
“Certain norms which are considered crucial in the village are kept, in the form of mainstream western culture; phones, guns and automobiles. However, unity is shown between the local people and nature via adopted social rituals, which centre around the careful long-term management and preservation of the environment.”
