“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.”
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.
