Imagine being brought into touch with world culture for the first time. What if you weren't connected at birth, but had a traditional lifestyle completely disconnected? What would it be like to suddenly gain access to world news, technology, and information; to be grafted into the world's monetary system? How do you protect your way of life and the natural environment that sustains you? How do you navigate such a transition? Today in the remotest corners of the world this human experience is happening for the final time.
And this is my next project.
In just a two months time I will be traveling deep into the jungle of Peru to visit indigenous communities who are living on the very edge of society's connectivity to document what it is like to experience this transition. I have been prepping this project for the last two years and my team and I are just about ready to go.
