In the last three weeks I have been traveling through the Amazon in part of the Brazilian territory. This trip is part of my project "Stress Nexus", which aims to document the relationship of man to geographic space.

One of the photos I took was published by actor Leonardo DiCaprio in his personal account on Instagram. The image and subtitle show that deforestation in Brazil is accelerating. The new far-right government of Jair Bolsonaro, has no environmental protection policy.

"Stress Nexus" is a project in progress. Thanks to actor Leonardo DiCaprio for sharing this image and helping to raise public awareness about this serious problem for the planet.
