so on BBC news today... the Brazilian government has been flying over the jungle to photograph unknown tribes to prove their existence. the govt states that they are taking the photos from airplanes to bring awareness to their homes/lives in order to protect them from the logging industry which has been steadily destroying the rainforest ever since Fern Gully came out.
but really... check out the photos. they are crazy. click on them to enlarge to see more detail.
i'm not entirely sure what to think. they look pretty unhappy about the whole photoshoot, and really, i hope the photos are being used for the right reasons... and if they are, i hope it does some good. really interesting though.
more photos here.
