Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 841525394X, Hardcover)

Agriculture is an unavoidable fact of African life: it accounts for 70% of employment on the continent, and 25% of its GDP. Whilst Nickerson's earlier work, Farm, concentrated on how individual identity is made through improvisation, Terrain takes a broader view, focusing on the synergy between cultivation, workers and the environment.
The result is a new kind of portraiture that steps away from photojournalism, refusing to merely illustrate statistics and moral indignation.
Terrain instead employs a reduced artistic language to draw attention to important debates around crop specialization, subsistence farming and food security.


Terrain is about human intervention in the natural landscape, the impact our presence has and the changes it brings about and how, for better and for worse, the world that we make, in turn, changes who we are.
