Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology unites scientists with various backgrounds (natural sciences and humanities) whose aim is to investigate the history of humankind from an interdisciplinary perspective with the help of comparative analyses of genes, cultures, cognitive abilities, languages and social systems of past and present human populations as well as those of primates closely related to human beings.

Kenya's landscape ranges from the hot and humid Indian Ocean, to the dry and dusty high lands in the centre, to arid and hot deserts up in the North near Lake Turkana. Only Western Kenya, near Lake Victoria has cool and humid rainforests. Nature, animals and plants, but also humans, need water for survival. But water is scarce in Kenya. And all too often there is not enough for everyone. How nature and people deal with small amounts of water, biologist and photographer Dr. Fabian Haas documents with the help of his camera. His pictures are exhibited at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology at the Deutscher Platz 6 in Leipzig from October 9 to December 31, 2017.
