During photograph sessions, Melchert is witness to the inseparable nature of people and their landscape, which is threatened by logging, pollution, climate change, drought and erosion. Apart from the landscapes themselves, he photographs inhabitants in their surroundings, capturing their resilience. He shows what it is that drives them, but mostly, he displays their bond with the land.
