In the Ecuadorian Amazon we studied the importance behind species interactions. My photos this week explore how plants, animals, and people coexist within the rainforest.
Tena is considered a gateway to the Ecuadorian Amazon, one of the most biodiverse places on earth. In Tena I focused on the interplay between man-made infrastructure and the natural world, as well as the natural textures and patterns I found throughout my stay. I was fascinated by the vivid green of the leaves and the overgrowth of vegetation surrounding me. This collection of photographs aims to highlight the natural beauty of Tena.
