“I funded it myself because I couldn’t find one publication that would even give me $1,000 to help fund it,”

Photographer Evan Abramson in an interview with PDN, on the financial risks he took to fund this six week shoot in Africa.

The interview is a great read, as it highlights how difficult it can be to get a story like this off the ground. As for the final product, compelling.

A must watch.

As temperatures rise and water supplies dry up, semi-nomadic tribes along the Kenyan-Ethiopian border increasingly are coming into conflict with each other. When the Water Ends focuses on how worsening drought will pit groups and nations against one another. See the project at http://mediastorm.com/clients/when-the-water-ends-for-yale360
