Mustafah Abdulaziz has spent years documenting humanity’s relationship to a precious natural resource: water. This installment of Abdulaziz’s Water series focuses on the photographer’s home state of California, which has been in the grip of a record, multi-year drought. Abdulaziz has illustrated California’s natural and man-made terrain with dramatic landscape shots, alongside humanistic scenes highlighting how the region has been challenged by scarcity.
