This historic image of a curious Ashaninka boy shows the great photographic skill and unique style of explorer Chuck Clark. Note Clark's use of focus to identify the subject (the curious Ashaninka boy) of the composition. Note also, the out of focus airplane in the background, showing the clash of cultures, indigenous versus modern. Most of the indigenous people that Clark met, had never seen a Westerner before, much less an American from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Good or bad, the world of the Ashaninka tribe would never be the same again.
