Mads Nissen





“This is my journey into the Amazon

– its rivers, its forest and its people.

 The Amazon that stole my heart many

years ago. The Amazon which I love,

fear and live for.”


A long term personal project


Nissen is currently editing a book.

As a consequent only already-published material is available.


Excerpt from his introduction to the book:


“For one moment the humidity absorbed all sounds. They simply disappeared. The air swallowed them so they never reached my ears. I stood there, isolated and silent. Part of a greater being. I felt dissolved. I sat down on a tree trunk and let go. I was nothing anymore, and I felt that if I died right then and there it would be okay... Beautiful, even.
