After the Fall


The Mixteca is one of the most heavily eroded landscapes on earth. Up to five meters of topsoil have been lost.

Like a slow-motion landslide, the town is sliding downhill at the rate of one meter per day, destroying homes and livelihoods as houses and farmland slip into the valley below.
