Seattles Daniel Beltra is an assignment photographer for Greenpeace who has spent over two decades documenting mans devastating impact on the planet. Amazon: Forest at Risk is an extensive collection of work based on his repeated travels to Brazil. These beautiful yet grim shotsthe rainforest canopy in flames, a monkey found dead with his mouth open in a silent screamserve as a poignant reminder that the countrys tropical landscape is rapidly deteriorating. The majority of people dont have the opportunity to travel to the remote locations where I work, he wrote in an e-mail from Haiti, where hes currently documenting the earthquake aftermath. I feel a responsibility to document whats happening to our environment for them to see and hopefully inspire them to act. Also on display as part of PCNWs Blue Earth: Art as Activism is work by Heather McClintock and Rozarii Lynch. ERIKA HOBART
