Tommaso Protti - Terra Vermelha
For over eight years, Tommaso Protti has documented the intersecting social and environmental crises plaguing the Amazonian states of Brazil. His series is a raw and unfiltered portrayal of the deforestation, unregulated development, pollution, and crime that ravages the region. Protti sheds light on a harsh reality driven by poverty, corruption, and a reckless pursuit of self-interest, where the value of land often trumps the sanctity of human life. Unravelling the tragic path towards the destruction of our planet and emphasising humankind’s proximity to its own annihilation, ‘Terra Vermelha’ urges us to confront the dire need for conservation and change in this vital ecosystem.
