Bear's photos to appear in new book, "Life in Oil" by Bear Guerra

Bear Guerra has been traveling and working alongside anthropologist, writer and dear friend Michael Cepek in Cofán indigenous communities in the Ecuadorean Amazon. His beautiful portrait of Roberto, Alejandro and Lucia Criollo graces the cover (plus more than 40 of his documentary images are inside) in Michael's new book, "Life in Oil," which tells the history and consequences of the oil industry from a Cofán perspective.
