On July 2nd 2008 Ingrid was freed along with 14 fellow hostages in the most daring of military rescues without a single shot being fired.
In Ingrid’s jungle prison there were few heroes or heroines, human beings thrown together against their will and kept together in inhumane conditions – never knowing how long their captivity would last, or even if they would survive it. At times they felt that attempts to release them at any moment would result in their murder.
2320 Days in a Jungle is a journey back along rivers and through thick jungle to confront the past and meditate on what it means to be kidnapped: the waiting, the uncertainty, the powerlessness, the very real proximity of death, the total lack of freedom and any choice in how life progresses.
The Times: January 2005. Outstanding explorations of power and also intimate personal dramas: more dramatic than fiction while revealing the universal forces behind.
Tim Adams in the London Observer, January 2003: Angus Macqueen has “a body of work which stands alongside the photography, say, of Josef Koudelka, the journalism of Neal Ascherson or the fiction of John Berger, in humanising our understanding of the changes that have affected those at the margins.”
