Mee's final journey, 1988: in the field

May 1988, Río Negro

On her final journey in 1988, Mee searched for and sketched the cactus Selenicereus wittii in an igapo (blackwater-flooded forest) of the Río Negro. The expedition was recorded for a TV film and the final chapter of Margaret Mee, In Search of Flowers of the Amazon Forests (1988).
