Comments Off on Mesmerizing photos show faces of indigenous Brazilians projected onto the Amazon rainforest

In spring 2016, Surui Chief Almir Surui Narayamoga invited Echaroux to his village, where the street artist photographed the natives for “The Crying Forest” project. The faces are enlarged and carefully projected over the trees to create a seamless and striking composition. The installation was created to help the Surui people raise awareness of the dangers of massive deforestation and the impact it has on the ecosystem and their lives. Related: Gigantic Leafy Faces Light Up a Forest in Wisconsin Chief Narayamoga was appointed by the Brazilian government to help replant and protect his tribe’s section of the rainforest. Over 300 truckloads worth of illegally logged trees are estimated to leave the Surui area everyday. “Victims of massive deforestation and gold washers who did not hesitate to violate the Surui’s territory to seize deposits of precious stones, the Surui people want to raise awareness of this horrible and greedy slaughter that endangers a territory and its people,” Echaroux says. “The Crying Forest” photographs will be on display at the Taglialatella gallery in Paris from November 10th through December 15th, 2016. + Philippe Echaroux Via Colossal
