ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON
Amazon is the planetary temple for all sentient beings.
Spending a couple of years there, researching and shooting, made me realize that we, the Natives, the rivers, the trees, the animals and the spiritual beings – from all realms – are nothing but ONE.
The need to save and protect the Amazon forest, along with Mother Gaia and all her beauty, is the need to save ourselves.
