Madagascar: A Land Out of Balance is a compilation of work created by Ed Kashi during a 2010 trip to Madagascar to visit the southeast coastal community of the Malagasy people. A 2010 Prix Pictet Commission presented Kashi with the opportunity to work with Azafady, a small grass-roots NGO, to better understand the plight of the Malagasy as they find themselves struggling to cope with the dwindling forests, water resources and fisheries that have been their livelihood. Madagascar: A Land Out of Balance documents how, in the face of diminishing arable land, Malagasy farmers are joining other newly conscripted farmers-turned-fishermen in numbers too great to operate in balance with the ocean’s limited supply. These destructive cycles continue to repeat themselves, sowing the seeds of desertification, receding oceans, and the enforced migration of communities into already overcrowded towns. First the earth, and then the sea - the people of Madagascar are running out of options.
