Photographer's Note

Kaingin is the local term for the destructive practice of slash and burn agriculture practiced by some upland people of the Philippines. The cleared area is then planted with corn or vegetables and after one crop with the soil nutrients consumed, additional forest is burned to start all over again.This picture taken in one of the hills of an island in northern Iloilo proves that the practice is rampant and should be stopped by Philippine authorities. Kaingin destroys the ecology of the place.
