Publisher Note

Our Dark Materials features stories and compelling visual documentation on black carbon – also known as soot – and its impact on the Himalayan mountain glaciers, water security, and public health across India.

Documentary photographer Ashley Crowther has followed the story of smoke and fire and its relationship with communities from remote Himalayan villages, harsh coal mining regions, and booming Indian megacities.

Through documentary photography and scientific journalism, Our Dark Materials captures one of Asia’s most pertinent and under-reported environmental and social development issues of modern times.
