Bruce Shillingsworth, the director of Yaama Ngunna Baaka Corroboree Festival director, plays with his grandson at the Burke and Wills campground near Lake Pamamaroo, in Menindee, New South Wales, Australia, October 2, 2019. Recently, Aboriginal communities held special festivals along the river "to heal the Barka". Ochre-painted dancers performed around fires at dusk, revering the river but also seeking to draw attention to its plight. "We're going to start dancing and singing the land," Shillingsworth said. "Singing the rivers, singing our environment back again to make it healthy." REUTERS/Tracey Nearmy SEARCH "NEARMY DROUGHT" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Barkindji Elder David William Clark cooks over an open fire at his shack near the Darling River in Wilcannia, New South Wales, Australia, September 30, 2019. Prolonged drought exacerbated by demands on water resources by irrigators and cities means the Darling River (Barka) is running dry. The towns of Menindee and Wilcannia avoid drinking tap water, relying instead on charity donations of 10-litre boxes of water and rain tank water for potable uses. "I always think of Australia as the Aboriginal people's own Garden of Eden, and we lived according to that law and rule," Clark said. "Governments should never have taken ownership of water. Water is the most important commodity on the face of this earth." REUTERS/Tracey Nearmy SEARCH "NEARMY DROUGHT" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

The Wider Image: Thirst turns to anger as Australia's mighty river runs dry
Reduced to a string of stagnant mustard-coloured pools, fouled in places with pesticide runoff and stinking with the rotting carcasses of cattle and fish, the Darling River is running dry. The parched earth of Australia's longest waterway, if tributaries are included, is in the grip of the continent's most severe drought in a century. At Menindee, 830 km west of Sydney, despair has turned to anger as residents blame the government for exacerbating the drought by drawing down river water in 2017 for irrigation and other uses downstream. Locals now avoid using tap water for drinking and washing babies and children, saying it has caused skin irritation, and prefer boxed and bottled water instead.

Pictures of the Year: Caravans: the new face of migration
Luis Acosta holds 5-year-old Angel Jesus, both from Honduras, as a caravan of migrants from Central America en route to the United States crossed through the Suchiate River into Mexico from Guatemala in Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, October 29, 2018. Reuters photographer Adrees Latif: "When I arrived to the scene, most of the migrants had already made it to the Mexican side of the river and were resting and drying their clothes along the bank. In the river, dozens of migrant men had locked arms to make a snake-like human cordon from the Guatemalan side to Mexico, so no-one would get swept by its powerful pull. With one camera in hand and a 35 mm lens, I broke into the cordon to photograph the last group of migrants crossing. A family that had made it to the middle of the river was handing their children to other men to help them reach the shore. As a man grabbed the boy in front of me, I followed him, photographing, as he carried him to safety. Moments later, the last set of migrants crossed, and the men who had locked hands in the cordon all swam towards Mexico and started celebrating that everyone in the caravan had made it safely. This photograph begs the question: why would a family leave home and not only risk their own lives but also the lives of their children by doing such extraordinary things? What propels someone to walk without knowing where they will next break bread or quench their thirst?." REUTERS/Adrees Latif SEARCH "IMMIGRATION POY" FOR THIS STORY.

Luis Acosta holds 5-year-old Angel Jesus, both from Honduras, as a caravan of migrants from Central America en route to the United States crossed through the Suchiate River into Mexico from Guatemala in Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, October 29, 2018. Adrees Latif: "For the past nine days, I had been following a caravan of over 7,000 migrants from Central America who were making their way north after crossing the Guatemala-Mexico border. Instead of trying to attempt another gate crossing, the migrants had moved towards the Suchiate River to try to cross. Most of the migrants had already made it to the Mexican side of the river and were resting and drying their clothes along the bank. In the river, dozens of migrant men had locked arms to make a snake-like human cordon from the Guatemalan side to Mexico, so no-one would get swept by its powerful pull.

The Wider Image: Tequila boom rooted in traditional farming techniques
A growing thirst for tequila from New York to Tokyo has made the sale of the drink into a multibillion-dollar industry, but its production remains rooted in centuries-old methods of farming using hand tools and packs of mules. Mexico's western state of Jalisco is the heartland of the tequila industry, where 'jimadores,' the farmers of the agave cactus from which the spirit is distilled, have worked the fields for generations. "I am so proud to be a jimador, we are the first in the chain of the tequila industry, without us there is no tequila," said Mario Perez, a 39-year-old jimador. But the popularity of tequila has driven a worsening shortage of the agave, while some of the younger generation shun what was once a highly respected job. "In the old days to be a jimador was a respected job, now you are a simple worker," said Perez. "But it is a work of great tradition." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso SEARCH "JASSO TEQUILA" FOR THIS STORY.
