Their double polar expedition project, «Arctic: New Frontier», focuses on the consequences of the melting of the sea ice for the planet, and the medium-term prospect of its total disappearance.

🌳 During 6 months, italian photojournalist Tommaso Protti (@tomprotti) documented the social crises and the ongoing destruction of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.⁠

With his partner and friend Sam Cowie (@samcowie84), a British journalist also based in São Paulo, he visited the Araribóia reserve in Maranhão state, one of the most affected by the fires and illegal deforestation. He also spent time with the “guardians of the forest”, some Guajajara organized in patrols that track and expel illegal foresters at the risk of their lives.⁠
