Brazil is one of the world's most biodiverse countries, with a total of four million plant and animal species, and forests covering half of the country's surface. At the same, and in line with the motto Order and Progress embossed in its flag, the exploitation of its riches has made Brazil the ninth biggest economy in the world.

In Portuguese, the official language of a country of more than 180 indigenous languages, the word "exploracao" refers to both exploration and exploitation.

Thus began a photographic journey to capture the blurry boundary between exploration and exploitation in Brazil.
