Photojournalist Cristina Mittermeier knows the power of water: the power it has to give life when it is respected, and to destroy when it is misused. During her time with the Kayapo people in the Amazon, she documented a society that relied on their local waterway to survive who found their way of life threatened by a massive new dam. In British Columbia, she found First Nations fighting to protect their sacred headwaters. In the far North, Inuit peoples adapting to a rapidly changing world. And, in Hawaii, a new community of indigenous peoples seeking to reclaim their connection to the sea. She learned that one concept bound these disparate communities together: “Enoughness,” or taking only that which you need. Join Meittermeier as she shares her stunning photography and powerful stories of people living on the razor’s edge between the industrialized world, and the pockets of wilderness still left.
