Roy Mangersnes - Jungle light


I am working on a project in Bolivia, and spent some time in the remote jungles north in the country last year. Every day a group of Bolivian, or Black-capped, Squirrel Monkeys came to camp to check us out. They were coming into the open, but I wanted to capture the animals in the dense jungle, with only little light shining through. Photographing in this environment is rather hard, but even more rewarding.
