Food for thought

Deep in the mangrove swamps on the Pacific coast in Colombia live a group of people, many call them the 'swamp people'. This is a group of people who really know the value of food. Daily, they head to the swamps - no matter the heat or harsh rains - to search and collect shellfish called ‘piangua’. These images really capture the importance of food and how difficult it is for some to find basic sustenance.
