About the Photograph:

“This photo was taken from a low-flying plane just outside Addis Ababa—I was on my way to the eastern border of Ethiopia for an assignment. The backbone of the Ethiopian economy is agriculture, and for centuries this has meant the rural landscape is made up of small farms of one or two hectares, planted with a diversity of crops at any given point of the year. In recent years, the Ethiopian government has aggressively introduced programs to transform Ethiopian agriculture into large-scale commercial farming enterprises. These small farms are going to disappear soon.”
