Environmental Photographer of the Year

One thing about being a human ecologist is I genuinely like humans. The diversity of human lifestyles and ecological adaptations is just gloriously complex.

This illustrative photograph caught my eye in today's paper. There are 14 more equally stunning photographs.

From The Guardian:

Environmental photographer of the year and quality of life winner:

"Happy in her own world," Abhijit Nandi, India.

‘The woman in my picture is returning home from the paddy field after a long day at work. She never thought a village woman could be the subject of a photograph, so when I told her I'd like to take a picture of her, she just laughed’
