Entry Description

This is the story of the small communities inhabiting the Amazon between the Iquitos and the Peruvian-Colombian border. Diary of four trips in the period from May 2015 to November 2016. The fascination with the simple life of the Bora Indian (Aladino - Shaman), and their relationship to the fundamental principles of the existence, but also the extraordinary charm of local doctors using the natural ways of treating humanity, was the core of my Peruvian history. The images of the Israelites living in harmony with the principles of the Old Testament perfectly complemented the image of the Pebas people living far away from the Western way of life in a hurry.
