Don't you wonder what they think of a camera, especially a professional one, of which they have very little understanding. Wait...that sounds like me!!

Give me a break with these "lost native tribes" nonesense. There has not been an uncontacted tribe left anywhere in more than 50 years.
Some tribes do choose to stay out, like the Africans in south India who walk around naked, or some few rain forest tribes, but they all know of and have seen the modern world.
Ifcourse, all new photos of them are staged, and done for tourists.

"World’s Remotest Tribes" =/= "lost native tribes" or " uncontacted tribe"

like the Africans in south India who walk around naked

er... ?

It is not out of the realm of possibility. There are large portions of both the Amazon and Papua New Guinea that have yet to be explored due to their terrain and forestation. There are most likely tribes that have yet to personally encounter the "modern" world.

I think the gist of this is there are still a lot of ethnic groups that still live the way they did a hundred years ago. Yes they have had limited contact with the modern world but shun it but as the years go by they will probably become more westernized.
The photos I posted from New Britain were from a rare occasion were tribes had come together for a sing sing, some traveling for weeks through the jungle. There were more civilized tribes in the area we were in that were still afraid of some of the tribes that had come from the interior. This event was not staged for tourist in fact my wife and I were the only white people there.

Africans in south India

You have got me on this one I did not know there were Africans in any part of India.

There are lots of places were they walk around naked. Palau south Pacfic in fact they have buildings called the man house..were the men meet it is forbidden for a female to go anywhere near, local or tourist

Thanks Rick, always enjoy your posts as usual. What an adventure that photographer must have had in doing this project.

I surely hope they don't pass away, not only for photography, but for humanity

@GOMAR and others who don't believe there are any lost tribes, I suggest that you do a little research such as the following book:
The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon's Last Uncontacted Tribes
By Scott Wallace

https://www.facebook.c​om/uncontacted (external link)


OTOH the pictures shown are not lost tribes. They may very well be remote but they are not uncontacted or lost.

There are still areas in West Irian and Papua New Guinea accessible via river boat alone, i.e., no roads. I do agree that every year, modern "civilization" expands and contact with these remote tribes occurs.

My early childhood years were spent in South India. I saw many African students who came to study in South India, but I missed the naked tribes. They must have really shunned contact with the modern world.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
