The Blood Forest: Projections in the Amazon by Philippe Echaroux

In an effort to draw attention to deforestation, French photographer Philippe Echaroux captured a series of photos showing portraits of indigenous Brazilians projected onto the trees of the Amazon rainforest.

“The project focuses on a Suruí tribe led by a chief named Almir Surui Narayamoga, who had been charged by the Brazilian government to help replant and protect his tribe’s section of the rainforest.

The chief invited Echaroux to draw attention to this issue with photos, and the photographer decided to show the intimate connection between the native people and the land.”
