These aerial photographs of an uncontacted indigenous tribe in Brazil have to be one of the most haunting images taken with modern photography. The utter confusion on the faces of the tribesmen, the slack-armed staring at the airplane, and the vain attempts to shoot it down with arrows are startling reminders that the state we tenuously grasp at in order to conclude that man is ‘modernized’ is fragile indeed.
