As the climate crisis impacts every corner of the globe it is imperative that we, as a global community, have our individual stories heard.

Wildscreen are proud to be featuring this series of photographs by local and indigenous artists who have kindly provided their powerful, and emotive work for this inspiring exhibition focusing on Community.

Indigenous communities are in a constant fight to protect their ancestral land, and the forests which they have a deep knowledge and empathy. They are the guardians and the protectors of these vital ecosystems. Their stories are a essential component to the survival of our planet.

We are offering a limited sale of high-quality prints of selected images from our unique exhibition. Prints will be available to pre-order between 12th November 2021 - 28th November. All orders will be shipped the week commencing 6th December.

Born into Resistance,
Elizabeth Swanson Andi, Ecuador

Children of the Amazon--I don’t know what your future holds, I never could have guessed mine. I don’t know if you’ll have all the stars at your reach or if the sky will be filled with smog. I don’t know if you’ll be able to drink from the nearby creek, swim in the river, or if it will be contaminated by oil spills. I don’t know if you’ll be able to hear the jungle sing when night falls as it always has. I hope it never goes silent but I also know the jungle doesn’t roar like it used to.

Elizabeth Swanson Andi is a member of the Santu Urku Kichwa community on the Napo River in the Ecuadorian Amazon. She is an artist, environmental scientist, and storyteller inspired by the land and people who shaped her.

Sweet Kiss, Salt Water, Irati Dojura, Colombia

The little older sister kisses with emotion her younger sister who is only a few months old, she is the one who bathes her in the river every day, she is the one who wipes her sweet tears in the salty water, making the water sweet as well. The genuine instant, evidence of love, sisterhood, sisterhood, all dissolved in the clean and transparent water that innocence brings with it from childhood.

My name is Irati Dojura, which means "Mermaid of the forest". I was born in the high mountains, exactly in the western mountain range of the Andes, where my indigenous reservation called Karmatarua or Land of Pringamoza is located.
