A few years ago, far away from the Amazon, I found myself seated in front of the computer, editing photographs that I had recently taken of the jungle. On the radio, I listened in      horror to the news of forest fires advancing along the borders of Brazil and Bolivia, devastating not only the forest and its inhabitants but also rendering hundreds of native communities homeless. In that moment, I felt that the vibrant colors in the images I was working on began to fade, gradually transforming the photographs into somber memories that symbolize the pain and longing for these endangered territories. This is how the title "The Amazon is turning black" came into being.
