Mathieu Asselin talks about Monsanto: A Photographic Investigation, his meticulous investigation into the long history of the global biotechnology corporation, which won the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Award 2017.

About

Asselin is also joined in conversation about the project by artist, writer and curator Sunil Shah.

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.
