Breaking the Golden Thread is an Amazon based artistic collaboration between Maisie McNeice, a multidisciplinary visual artist and Jessica Suarez a journalistic photographer. Both have extensive biological field experience and are active conservationists. Breaking the Golden Thread will be examining the impact of artisanal extraction of gold in the Peruvian Amazon; the project will visually communicate the ensuing social, environmental and economic aftermath. The aim is to enlighten consumers by showing the process that is currently causing irreversible destruction of vast tracts of the Amazon rainforest. Breaking the Golden Thread will be a long term collaboration run by two women whose complementary skills and experience will guide and inform them throughout their artistic exploration.
