ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON
“Ever since I was a little kid I felt a strong connection to the jungle. As a kid and a teenager I went several times, even to do an editorial photoshoot with Ecuador’s most known photographer at the time. As an adult I became interested in the exploration of the amazon and had transformative experiences.
“Actually I find vital to protect the amazon from deforestation and also protecting its protectors. Giving them control over their lands, respecting native indigenous communities, their core values and their cosmovision. I believe the amazon holds knowledge that could help us solve modern problems with ancestral wisdom.
“I’m also a founding member of Emergencia Amazonia a Blog that focuses on delivering news in English and Spanish. We are working on developing the podcast to reach even more people, and also offer resources related to the amazon to artists and creators.”
