My key focus in the documentation of the alternative community living at Chyan was not only to illustrate the idealistic and gratifying side of this lifestyle but also the challenges and dedication it takes to live in this fashion. Many onlookers seem to be enchanted by this subculture and their way of life and although there are many fulfilling parts of this existence, such as the close proximity to nature, nomadic practices and low living costs, there is also a great amount of hard work that come along with it. This can include anything from rebuilding a toppled caravan awning to fetching water, keeping warm to finding a sufficient light source.
