This is an image I took in the Amazon rainforest with a film camera.
It was the first or last image in the roll, and something happened when I took it, the image was somehow deformed, as
things often are at the beginning or end of anything. A report published on Monday in the journal
Nature Communications reveals that the Amazon rainforest is much closer than projected to
reaching a tipping point that would transform it into a savannah, endagering countless species
and destroying much of its vegetation

The preservation of the Amazon rainforest concerns all of

us, it has been rightly described as the lungs of our planet. Yet the first human victims of its
accelerating destruction are those populations who live within it, and rely on it for their survival.

their cultures, their ways of life, and their environment.
