Land Inc. is a travel documentary through Brazil, Dubai, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Indonesia, the Philippines and Ukraine to document a crucial phenomenon: land grabbing.
Neocolonialism or development opportunities? Seven internationally renowned experts give us an overall view of the matter.
Land Inc. is above all the result of two years of work of four photographers from the Italian collective TerraProject who, from 2012 to 2013, traveled the seven countries to understand the issues, depict the actors and analyze the balance of powers of this global phenomenon.
If each report (images, texts and graphics) reveals specific issues, the seven chapters together draw the geography of tomorrow’s agriculture.
