Publisher's Description

A damning examination of Monsanto’s ecological impact on America, through archival documents and photographs

In the second edition of this already widely acclaimed photobook, winner of the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Award, the New York–based French-Venezuelan photographer Mathieu Asselin (born 1973) assembles portraits, landscapes, archival material, objects, screenshots, personal letters, court files, advertisements, microfilms and texts into a devastating indictment of the notorious American agricultural corporation.

Throughout the US, dozens of sites have been classified as sensitive zones by the Federal Environmental Agency because of Monsanto's activities. Asselin spent five years documenting the fallout from Monsanto's corporate impunity, gathering materials, interviewing those affected and portraying the locations devastated by the company.

When the dummy for this book won the 2016 Fotobookfestival Kassel Dummy Award, jury member Ruben Lundgren wrote: 'The relevance of the topic is presented in a perfect package of photography, design and text. A rational kind of protest book, a true winner.' This new edition includes a section on Monsanto's recent merger with Bayer.
