IN THE SHADOW OF THE TREES


Expedicionários da Saúde is a Brazilian Non Governmental Organisation that provides healthcare for some of the most isolated tribes in the Amazon Rainforest. I travelled with the organisation during their 25th expedition, escorted down river by the Brazilian military, to the community of Santa Inés. There I spent 5 weeks documenting the construction of a travelling hospital and the medical treatment of the indigenous population.

After the expedition my photos were published and distributed to raise funds, above are a small selection from the series.
