Davi Kopenawa Yanomami

It does not make sense to disregard the wisdom of those whose long-term approach to and knowledge of the natural world have been informed by experience over millennia, when we do not yet know the full scope of what it is we are losing. With traditionally low-carbon lifestyles, tribal people are well placed to give advice on the solutions needed to mitigate climate change. They believe they can influence the choices which humanity faces. “Only we, the indigenous people, know how to protect the forest,” says Davi Kopenawa Yanomami, “give us back our lands before the forest dies.”

Alvaro Sanchez-Montanes

Inspired by an article he read about abandoned diamond mines in Namibia, photographer Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés wanted to learn more. In his magazine he had only stumbled across one picture of Kolmanskop, a now ghost town in southern Namibia that had once been a rich mining village. Online he found a treasure trove of interesting photos and at that moment promised himself that he would one day experience the Namib desert for himself. He would see with his very own eyes how the desert sands' had reclaimed its space.
