Leprosy

Belem, Brazil – 1 March 2004

A man affected by leprosy beggs on the street of Belem, Brazil. Amazonia is the world's largest dense tropical forest area. Since the 16th century the original indigenous people have been virtually pushed away or exterminated. The primal ancient unity between tribes and the jungle ambient has changed into a fight between the urban based civilization and the jungle enviroment. Although new generations of white and mestizo settlers have not become adapted to the wild tropical climate and rough conditions, they keep moving deeper into the virgin forest. The technological expansion causes that Amazonia is changing rapidly.
