The real-life women portrayed in Oscar-winning Nomadland

Nomadland triumphed at the Oscars this weekend, winning three awards – including Best Actress for protagonist Frances McDormand, Best Picture and Best Director for Chloé Zhao.

The film portrays modern nomads in the US, who find themselves living in their vans while going between temporary jobs and travelling around the American hinterland – and these incredible pictures reveal the real-life people represented in the award-winning film.

Drivers who are part of the mid-Atlantic chapter of a group called RVing Women are seen participating in an RV camping weekend at the Ramblin Pines campsite just outside of Baltimore in Woodbine, Maryland, this weekend.

The members are captured drinking wine together and laughing with one another while sitting around a fire, with their motorhomes surrounding them.

One woman pictured in the joyful snaps is Kathy Wardell, a 56-year-old who decided to live full-time in her van from October. She is seen beaming at the camera while posing by her home. 

RVing Women was founded in 1991 and boasts more than 2,000 members. Some travel alone and are retired, while others go together in small groups and continue working.

‘We want women to develop skills and friendships in that special atmosphere of a women-only space’, said the organizers on their website.

Nomadland, which was released on February 19, 2021, is based off of the 2017 non-fiction book by Jessica Bruder, who wrote the novel based on her experiences with older people still dealing with the impacts of the 2007-2009 recession. 

Recently widowed and now jobless Fern (played by McDormand) travels around in a van as she encounters a burgeoning subculture of those whose lives have been ravaged by the financial crisis and, too poor to retire, find themselves living like modern nomads. They go between temporary jobs while living in their vehicles.
