I’ve recently had the pleasure of editing through some stunning photography by Daniel Beltra, who is a new contributor to the Reportage collection. Shooting in various locations for Greenpeace, Daniel has captured some stunning images documenting the environment and man’s influence on it, a few of which I’d like to share here.
Daniel brought me some amazing aerial images showing the systematic methods of deforestation inflicted on large areas of the Amazon rainforest in the name of industry. However, the images that really gave me goosebumps were these showing the Amazon region in one of the worst droughts ever recorded there. The alien landscapes of revealed river beds and stranded boats and the immense sense of scale is quite awesome and humbling….
For scale, in the image above, can you spot large tree (white speck) on the lower right of the river bed?
