"This aerial shot shows just a small part of Ganvié, a floating village in the north of Benin," says Evangelidis. "It is said to have about 30,000 inhabitants. The houses are built on wooden stilts and any sign of land is brought in by the inhabitants. The fertile water allows for fishing and small-scale pisciculture which is the primary subsistence and economic activity for these people."
