Farming in the desert, near the Peruvian coast

Photographer’s comment: “The photo shows land-use change and the problems related to water scarcity and food security. There is a stark contrast between the green of the agricultural production in the foreground and the barren desert in the background. It can evoke reflections on humans’ aptness to secure their survival in a hostile environment but also on exploitation of nature regardless of the consequences.
