 Magnum’s Larry Towell says he has been photographing issues of land and landlessness all his life, so when the protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline garnered national attention, he followed his instincts to head out to Standing Rock. “When you lose your land, you lose your identity,” Towell tells TIME.  - TIME December 2016

Photographer Larry Towell feels that what's happening at the Oceti Sakowin Camp in North Dakota is about more than just an oil pipeline. "I believe it is the beginning of a civil rights movement in America," he said. "Only it involves a different ethnic minority." People have been gathering at the camp for months now, demonstrating against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. - CNN December 2016
