“I am a conservation photographer, but I rarely photograph the plants and animals and landscapes people think of when they think of the environmental movement. My focus has always been on the people and the local communities, both because it’s right but also because it’s also practical,” photojournalist Jason Houston told Hollywood on the Potomac. Houston was the honored guest at his installation at RARE headquarters in Arlington, Virginia depicting daily life in two very different but like-minded communities in the Philippines and Colombia. Houston was commissioned by RARE to use photography and video to tell the immersive story of pioneering farmers and fishers who are introducing sustainable resource management practices to support both their families as well as the resources of the land and sea.
