Latinism: "The Souls of Climate, Indigenous, Shamanism and Socialism"
In part 3 of my "Ism" series, I present a photographic exploration of Latin America. Exploring the themes of how climate change is affecting the Indigenous and Sharman Tribes of The Regions of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile in the shared Amazon and remote deserts, and sacred indigenous lands. Including the impact of deforestation and displacement and the fight to preserve their traditions and cultures and the challenges to keep the ingrained Socialist state alive. Especially during the current crisis of Climate change the is greatly impacting indigenous peoples life and habitats. I will endeavour with a photographic narrative, to document the indigenous reservations, communities and tribes. Capturing how they are protecting and preserving their indigenous ways of life, and combating the challenges of this preservation in the face of Climate change, with visual reference to our beautiful Planet and Patcha Mama's extraordinary landscapes and peoples of Latin America. Fighting for their very existence and defending their sanctuaries and home, in this universal age of Climate Crisis.
