Part of a serises shoot for for Survival International documenting disparate communities that under threat of extinction. Here I photographed the Innu community in Davis Inlet, Canada. The community had been nomadic until low flying military jets and a oil pipeline disrupted the migration flows of the carabu, which was their main source of food. During the ensuing famine the government constructed a permanent settlement for the Innu. This provided for their material needs but destroyed their nomadic way of life. Alcoholism, petrol sniffing and domestic violence followed. For me it was the most depressing place I've ever stayed. The very soul of the people seemed to have been destroyed, they were totally lost.
In order to protect themselves from raids 'Shining Path' the local Maoist guerillias, locals have created their own patrols to police their communities. Bambamarca Peru.

The community seemed to be divided in half. Those who drank or sniffed petrol and those who went hunting at the weekend. Here Edward goes off to collect firewood. We would travel for several hours to find a good hunting spot and then set up tents as a base for the next few nights. Temperatures would reach -30C at night.
