About Monsanto: A Photographic Investigation
Mathieu Asselin’s searing photographic interrogation of global biotech giant Monsanto brings together hundreds of documents and photographs depicting the devastating human, ecological and economical impact of the company’s long and reckless story of growth, and their cynical efforts to change their negative public image.
Over five years Asselin conducted extensive research and travelled through Vietnam and the United States of America to find the people and places dramatically affected by Monsanto’s past and current practices. His determined approach resulted in an overwhelming depiction that also aims to portray what Monsanto’s near future might look like.
Monsanto: A Photographic Investigation is shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2018.
