All these photos come from Still Pictures. Daniel Dancer’s aerial shot (top left) shows the impact of clearcutting in California: the battle to preserve the ancient forests is not confined to the Majority World. Mark Edwards’ pictures of dancers and artists in Cameroon show a community harnessing traditional culture to spread the word about saving the forest. Jorgen Schytte (top centre) documents Mauritanians’ determination to reclaim the desert. Nigel Dickinson (bottom three) has captured a demonstration in the Philippines together with two images of the Kenyah people of Long Geng village in Sarawak, Malaysia.
