People of the Forest

A photographic exhibition by Jason Houston with writing by William deBuys that explores the complex dynamics between people and nature in the forests of Indonesian Borneo.

Jason Houston and William deBuys traveled to the remote Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve in Indonesian Borneo on assignment for the international conservation organization Rare. During their three week trip they trekked the perimeter of this critical orangutan habitat, visiting the small villages and meeting with the people who also rely on this forest: Rubber tree tappers, palm oil plantation workers, indigenous handicrafters, village leaders, forest rangers, conservation scientists, and the orangutans. The resulting portraits and written profiles bring to life the complex social and environmental dynamics that must be considered if we are to effectively address global issues such as tropical deforestation.
