  • About the series: White Gold: While India is shining at the small top of its society, in the cities, the country faces the worst agricultural crisis since the Green Revolution. In India 60% of the population still depends directly or indirectly on agriculture. Essentially it is the largest farming community in the world. But this India of villages and small farms is increasingly neglected and often abandoned in favour of the new economy based in industry and cities. Following the obvious signs of hopeless demoralization, White Gold investigates the cotton production and its social costs in the Vidarbha region.
  • About the Photographer: Uwe H. Martin, b.1973, Germany, is a visual storyteller and multimedia producer at the Bombay Flying Club, working on a set of documentaries about the global commons water, seed and land.
