Portraits of Water

Wetland ecosystems provide a wide variety of benefits to people, such as food, medicines, water purification and provision, coastal protection against storms, pollination, inspiration and recreation, among many others.

These portraits represent the millions of people who depend on healthy ecosystem for their survival, each of these persons has a story to share, a life linked to the wetlands. 

I visited 7 Ramsar Sites (Wetlands of international importance) in Costa Rica to capture part of the story of these amazing people.

This project was done through the generous funding from the Wetlands Project of the Ministry of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica
