Press Reviews

Trace Magazine
"Oil, like a thick stain, has glued together global news, but parallel to the timely tales of Iraq and unaffordable petrol is the story of oil drilling. The natural horror and the messy human devastation left behind are time bombs of birth defects, cancer epidemics and, ultimately, wholesale population extinction—like the Agent Orange of the Amazon. With rich histories, interviews and stunning photojournalism, Dematteis and Szymczak document the ruin and the resistance of Amazonian oil."
