Aislados "the isolated." (Aaron Vincent Elkaim, The New Yorker)

New Yorker (8/8/16)

A group of isolated, "non-contact", natives of the Peruvian Amazon wait on the shore for a group of government researchers. This picture is so resounding when taken into context of how these people are so isolated from the world and all the rest of mankind's influence. The depth of field* distinguishing the length between the elements in the foreground and the background (the water, the shoreline; the tree line, and the sky)  help the natives have a strong presence in the picture, but also makes them seem detached from the elements around them; and therefore, in my analysis, from civilization as well. *It looks clearer when the file isn't compressed
