In November 2009 I followed the path of three doctors, two dentists, and one acupuncturist through the Venezuelan jungle. We navigated the river for 10 days led by three indigenous guides. We visited small villages helping the natives with medicine and vaccines.
When there, I tried to capture the beauty of those places and the mystery of the natives: the indigenous Pemon.
This book is a photography of the harmony between indigenous people and nature.
The proceed from this book will go to Angel Conservation (http://www.angelconservation.org/)
