In Albania, life along Europe’s last wild river, the Vjosa, remains largely unspoiled by development and modern industry. The river flows unobstructed from its source in northern Greece through to the Adriatic Sea, and is one of the world’s least explored. Agriculture remains the mainstay of life, with hopes to expand the tourism industry through the temptation of unspoiled nature. Recently the fate of the river and residents along its banks has been threatened by the proposal of several hydropower dam projects, a reversal by a government that promised to declare it a national park. In a rare move for Albania, rather than accept the possibility that their villages could be flooded and environment forever altered, communities along the river united to fight those usually deaf to their pleas. This is a portrait of life along the Vjosa.
