'everything you touch is trash... when you start to think about trash, you see it everywhere. this is what i learned while reporting on the problem of solid waste pollution in guatemala. and as soon as i started looking into this story, i couldn’t stop thinking about how much garbage i was personally responsible for. every time i handed money to someone in exchange for something inevitably wrapped in or containing some tiny amount of plastic: trash. every time a drink arrived at the table with an unwrapped straw or a plastic spoon set beside it automatically: trash. even the clothes on my back and the shoes on my feet: future trash.' .

Another look at these ancient rock paintings hidden by decades of war in the colombian amazon. some estimate these paintings could be as much as 20,000 years old, but it's impossible to tell - the mineral-based paint is unable to be dated using the carbon-14 method. follow along @gena.g.steffens to see more of my project on the environmental consequences of peace in colombia with @natgeo @insidenatgeo.

this is @gena.g.steffens , a writer and photographer based in colombia. i've been posting for @theiwmf this week to share my work. thanks for tuning in, and for supporting the iwmf and all the great women they stand behind! .

A half century of war in colombia kept this country's most pristine jungles hidden from the world. today, peace has unleashed an unprecedented wave of environmental destruction, with deforestation rates reaching unprecedented levels in ecosystems never before studied by modern science. stay tuned for more...part of a project on the environmental consequences of peace with @natgeo @insidenatgeo

A half century of war in colombia kept this country's most pristine jungles hidden from the world. in places like guaviare, shown here, the 2016 peace accords seem to have brought more uncertainty than stability to the region, and have unleashed an unprecedented wave of environmental destruction that @ejercitonacionalcolombia @fuerzasmilcol are working to contain. stay with me for more @gena.g.steffens ...part of a project on the environmental consequences of peace with @natgeo @insidenatgeo

A half century of war in colombia kept this country's most pristine jungles and their secrets - like these ancient wall paintings - hidden from the world. in places like guaviare, where this photo was taken, peace has unleashed an unprecedented wave of environmental destruction. stay tuned for more...part of a project on the environmental consequences of peace with @natgeo @insidenatgeo

This is @gena.g.steffens , a writer and photographer based in colombia. i'm interested in experimenting with different visual storytelling techniques, my favorite being the chlorophyll printing method (shown here). i'll be using this technique to tell stories related to my @natgeo project in the colombian amazon. please join me at @gena.g.steffens to see more as this project evolves! .

Reorepamu. that's how you say "thank you" in korebaju pãirepã, deep in the sweltering jungles of caquetá, colombia.
