This tribute to the Swiss environmental activist Bruno Manser is the first collaboration between Isabelle Ricq and Christian Tochtermann. Specialised in documentary photography, Ricq spent several years in Borneo following the destruction of the forests and their replacement by gigantic palm oil plantations. There she first heard of Manser, who spent six years among the Penan, the island’s last nomadic people, sharing their struggle against logging companies before he disappeared without a trace in May 2000. The book is styled as a photographic letter addressed from the place where he was last seen, a place where it can be seen just how relevant his claims still are today.
