An anthropologist in the rainforest
Recently I am working on a new cover for a book written by an anthropologist who stayed at a small village called Semaq Seri, isolated from the world outside for centuries.
I combined an illustration of forest with real photos of plants to create a mixture of reality and illusion, trying to send the message across that our preconception of life can sometimes be realistically unreal.
The plants and trees are shot at different locations in Malaysia and Indonesia.
The native kid was shot by the author himself.
