The People of Clouds
The People of Clouds documents the unraveling of one the world's oldest farming cultures in the Mixteca region of southern Mexico, where land erosion and collapsing corn prices from free trade are bleeding communities dry. An "environmental disaster zone" in the words of the World Bank, up to five meters of topsoil have been lost in some areas, and some communities have lost 80% of their population to migration to the United States.
Photographer Matt Black's work has documented rural poverty, migration, and the social and environmental impact of modern agriculture for over a decade. A native of rural California, he lives in the state's Central Valley.

Three extra millimeters of water every year will make land vanish. It will swallow communities. It will change environmental habitats forever. For townspeople along the inner-coastal region of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the impact of sea level rise is no longer an abstract worry debated by politicians. They see the land becoming more saturated beneath their feet.

Mustang, the last Tibet
Photographer: Filippo Mutani
Upper Mustang is also known as a "Tibet outside the Tibetan Border". It resisted the Chinese invasion and it has been the base for the C.I.A. financed guerrilla against China during the sixties. The last King reigned until 2008, and he still lives in Lo Manthang. Being forbidden to foreigners until 1992, the Mustang is also the last Tibet enclave because it has managed to preserve original tibetan culture and buddhism practically untouched since the middle age.
