The Fertile Crescent — extending from the Persian Gulf through what is now Iraq, Syria, Jordan and the Palestinian territories and Israel — is often called the Cradle of Civilization.

NPR's Amr Alfiky reports on photographer Nadia Bseiso who "Curious about the changing landscape at her country's borders and the people who live there...journeyed to where Jordan meets Israel. ... Bseiso was eager to find out if the area called The Fertile Crescent of the Middle East was the same lush farming area it used to be."

You may see some of her photographs as well as read an interview with her. This is the first of a four-part series.
