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.
