The nomadic life of London piano tuner who values freedom over possessions

Londoner Richard Roberts is a man who chooses to live outside. Not knowing where he might sleep on any given night he nevertheless gets up each day and goes to work as a piano tuner. He sees his unconventional lifestyle choice as an experiment in economics, convenience and environmental impact. ‘Once I realized I didn’t need my possessions,’ he says, ‘I felt like a free man.’
