The uncontacted

My favourite Amazonian pictures are those that show people in the landscape (like). Screw those close-up facials portraying some savage lost in thought or meditative gaze; the western concept of autobiography is not universal. Anyway.. these four images of 'one of the world's last uncontacted Indians' just released by Survival International are nothing but stunning. That resolution! Anthropologists prefer the word 'isolated' over 'uncontacted' but Survival is a charity that needs to make headlines so that is ok, but do read this old discussion on savage minds if the subject is of interest to you.
