Equipped with a Leica M9, Uwe H. Martin headed for Brazil's Soya Highway, that stretches for 1740 kilometres through the country's Amazon region, all the way to Brazil's central savannah area. The road has opened up the wilderness to employment, law and order, and to big money. But, progress has its price: farmers increasingly opt for monoculture and pesticides, and nature is disappearing. Uwe H. Martin' images capture the whole range of life along the Soya Highway. You can see the full reportage in the 6/2013 issue of LFI appearing on August 9, 2013.
