Monsanto: A Photographic Investigation.

image
Postcard of the Former Monsanto Factory in Anniston, AL 1936.

Take a look at Mathieu's ongoing project on Monsanto's legacy. 

"My photographic project investigates key milestones in Monsanto’s 100 years history by documenting communities whose lives were dramatically affected by unscrupulous policies of this corporation. The project is based in the United States but to complete it I have to travel to Vietnam and Norway. During the last two years I’ve extensively travelled around the United States. I went to Alabama, West Virginia and Missouri to document communities located in the areas contaminated by Monsanto. Residents there have a very high level of cancer. In Pennsylvania and Ohio, I photographed children of U.S. Vietnam War veterans whose health was impacted through their parent’s exposure to Agent Orange. I met with families of farmers in Maine and Indiana: their businesses were endangered by Monsanto’s patent infringement laws on GMO seeds. The project combines environmental portraits, landscapes and archival materials".

To finish the project Mathieu  will travel to Vietnam (to photograph the consequences of the use of Agent Orange); and Norway (to the Svalbard Global Seed Bank on a remote island in Norway where seeds from all around the world are stored as a backup plan in large part due to the rise of genetically modified seeds).
