Face to Face, Indonesia, 2017

I was in Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia looking to photograph wild orangutans for a book project, One morning I was taking to a local ranger and he mentioned he had seen a Male Orangutan crossing the river in another stretch of the river 50 miles away a few months ago. We went there hoping to see this male and after waiting for 3 days he finally showed up and crossed the river.

It was a special natural history moment for me. Deforestation of these beautiful rainforest for palm oil farms has had a huge negative impact on these red apes, They hate water and there is no reason for them to venture into a crocodile infested waters.I am not a scientist but to me it looks like they are doing their best to adapt to the changing landscape of these once pristine rainforests.
