Amazon and Rio Negro is a travel diary through the dark and vital waters of the river that crosses the north of Brazil like a life scar. It portrays stories about the residents of the Rio Negro settlements and documents the remains of the old villages abandoned after the fall of the rubber business. Moral’s work is a reflection on man’s interaction with nature and vice versa, an unequal encounter characterized by a tension, reflecting the struggle for permanent existence.
Alfonso Moral is a Spanish photographer based in Valladolid (Spain). His work has been published by The New York Times, Newsweek, Financial Times, The Sunday Times, and Amnesty International amongst others.
