Madagascar – Illegal Deforestation of Bois de Rose

I am proud and excited to announce that the Madagascar project has been (finally) published in GEO Magazine across Europe. The 16 page article covers an extensive project I completed in 2009 uncovering Iogging activities and their international connections to Europe and the US. My personal goal as a photographer is to produce images that draw public attention to sustainable issues but working in partnership with The Environmental Investigation Agency was a notch up. Our evidence is being used by US Federal Agents in an ongoing prosecution of Gibson Guitars in Nashville. First reported HERE. Click the image below to view a selected 40 images from the story and stay tuned for further updates and insights into the story.

I have also uploaded an excerpt of the project’s written summary HERE for those wanting further information.
