Jungle on my Mind

A photography series focused on environmental awareness and the empowerment work the local NGO Wildlife Alliance is implementing in Koh Kong province, Cambodia, a region suffering from deforestation due to illegal logging and endangerment of many of its endemic species due to poaching.

The project consists on a series of conceptual portraits of former poachers, now trained and employed by Wildlife Alliance to work as forest rangers. They are photographed holding pieces of broken mirrors in front of their faces with the reflection being the forest – as a symbol for their new care for nature, as if they keep the jungle on their minds.
