Boly Sarr, a retired fisherman in his home. He says they once had to drag their boats very far to reach the sea, and due to rising seas now store the boats in the streets of the community.

For two years, I've been working on a project that investigates climate change a human experience. Often categorized as an "environmental problem," climate change is a already impacting daily lives- especially among those already living in poverty or more reliant on natural resources for daily sustenance. The project is a five-part series, and thus far, I've documented two chapters: spending one month in Senegal photographing and interviewing the lives of fisherman, herders, and farmers; and one month in Panama documenting the politically autonomous Guna people, who are facing relocation from rising seas and lack of drinking water, among other changes.
