Title: Rio

Location: Caiman Ecological Refuge, Brazil, 2019

Did you know that the Hyacinth Macaw can’t physically frown? It basically appears either happy, or really happy, all of the time.

During the 1980s they were in such high demand that more than 10 thousand were captured in the wild for the international pet trade.

Coupled with the expansion of agriculture and other human pressures, this well-mannered and expressive species of parrot was near the brink of extinction prior to international protections, which limited their trade in the global market.
Since then they’ve made a significant comeback in the Pantanal. Especially due to the dedication of organizations like the Instituto Arara Azul. Their work at the Caiman Ecological Refuge has proven invaluable in aiding to bolster the population through a research program that studies the bird populations and helps to provide artificial nests that further ensures their reprise in the region.

This particular happy Macaw was captured while on assignment for BTS Nature with SOS Pantanal & Oncafari at Caimain. The male had just flown down from an artificial nest and landed on a fence post where he gave me a big ol’ grin, as if to offer his thanks to the support for helping his species.

If you’re keen to learn more about the Pantanal and the species that inhabit this critically important natural ecosystem, then check out SOS Pantanal and Instituto Arara Azul.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The sizes of Small (Edition 100) and Medium (Edition 100) are being sold here as a special edition print run of Rio, which was previously offered in 2019 as part of the Pantanal Exhibition (Gabriel Wickbold Gallery, Saõ Paulo, Brazil). Both Large and Extra-Large are also offered here as special edition sizes (Each Edition of 15), distinguishable from the original edition of 15 offered through the gallery as a 1x1 square dimension print.

What are people saying about my prints?

Wilder, Twinning, & Motherhood
The stories and mission you share makes these prints even more special than just a beautiful photograph. These photographs bring to life memories, experiences, and dreams that we look forward to telling our children about!

Emily, USA

To me your photos are like a very tasteful crossing between a photograph and a painting. And the fact that the animals are portrait as serious as I'm used to see a human portrait being done but without losing the wilderness layer.

ONLINE vs. OFFLINE

I’ve been selling my prints offline in galleries, exhibitions, and world-renowned art shows to private collectors for years. You'll notice based on the color guide that many of the artworks already have a history of sales. This is the first time I’ve ever offered them to an online audience. Now that I'm selling online, I can offer a much greater selection at standard sizes at even more accessible prices. More below about sizes.
