Waterfall at the Tijuca National Park in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on December 12, 2012.


Tijuca is a hand-planted rainforest and the largest urban rainforest in the world. In an effort to protect Rio’s water resources Tijuca was replanted by Major Archer and a handful of slaves in the second half of the 19th century after the original forest had been destroyed to make way for coffee farms.

A whole decade has passed since I first met Simon Fisher, a veteran BBC journalist, in Wales. He was my mentor for the couple of months I spent as a Reuters Foundation Fellow at Cardiff University studying the ‘science’ of new media. Little did I know that life would bring us together all these years later in the city he loves and chose to be his home.

As the founder and curator of Rio de Janeiro’s latest and coolest photo gallery Simon invited me to exhibit my favorite images I’ve taken about water.
