In 1994, I walked across the Darien rainforest between Colombia and Panama. It was a hike that lasted two weeks, through one of the world's most inhospitable frontiers. I snapped this image in Pijao, the last hamlet on the Colombian side of the border, where I was retained for 24 hours by members of an armed guerilla faction, and subsequently released, as I was shooting a book on the Darien and it's ecology.
