Behind the Image

by Levison Wood

I met this young girl in a small village on the banks of the Rio Negro, a tributary of the Amazon River near to Manaus. She spoke a few words of English that she had picked up at school, although many of her family only spoke the tribal Dessana language. When I photographed her, her striking eyes stood out to me: she looked different to the other children.

Her mother explained that somewhere in her family history, the indigenous blood had mixed with what she called 'the white man'. Brazil is one of the most ethnically varied countries in the world, with a huge European influence. In the 20th century, vast numbers of Germans, Italians and Eastern Europeans settled across South America and married into indigenous communities.
