- Guyana, South America
Documentary Photography, January 2010
- Guyana, SouthAmerica is a place now close to my heart. I traveled to Guyana withLesley University to
study the ecology of the plants and people in thisbeautiful place. Home of friendly indigenous Amerindians, this 80% prestigious rainforest only has one national park, and is in danger of exploitation by mining, logging, and the selling of wildlife. I stayedat Rewa Eco-lodge, supporting the native people by tourism, because one can only capture and sell a parrot once for captivity, but one can sell that parrot an infinite amount to tourists who capture that parrot onlywith a camera lens.
