Photo was taken at the village of Boca Da Valeria, Brazil, South America. The village is located on the Amazon River about two days cruise from the mouth of the Amazon. We were cruising up the Amazon River and stopped at this village where the villagers eagerly welcomed us in their tribual regalia.
Background was removed using Tiffen DFX.
