A new project by French street artist Philippe Echaroux aims to draw attention to the deforestation sweeping through the Amazon. During the project Echaroux photographs the indigenous Suruí tribe in Brazil and projects the images up onto the rainforest at night creating staggeringly beautiful images fringed by the edges of the trees.

By highlighting the connection between the forest and the people who live there, Echaroux is stressing the importance of preserving the region. The tribe’s chief Almir Surui Narayamoga is working with the Brazilian government to replant his region of the Amazon.
