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.

Photographing Ecuador's Cofán community by Bear Guerra

Bear recently traveled to the Cofán community of Dureno (in the Ecuadorean Amazon) with our friend and collaborator, anthropologist Michael Cepek, who is working on a book, "Life in Oil," which describes the history and consequences of the oil industry from a Cofán perspective. Their collaboration will be out sometime next year.
