The Amazon

In 2000, guided by naturalist John Gebhards and Brazilian photographer Mario Friedlander, I ventured into the vast Amazon basin. The 700 mile journey began in a Russian four wheel drive command car in Chapada, a plateau between the Pantanal flood plain and Amazon River in Brazil. Next by small boat down the Guapore River, a tributary of the Amazon, through Noel Kempff National Park in Bolivia and finally to Santa Cruz.
