Photographer's Note

Here we are, in a Yanomami village at the edge of Rio Casiciare, not far from Brazil .
I was tolerated to photograph the ceremony of a
birthday of died of a shaman... a ceremony which lasted all during the night with songs, incantations, and some dances around fire. From one moment I could only look and listen what occurred in front of me! exeptional and unforgettable, especially splendid plaintive songs of the women... and not any audio recording...

Aquí estamos, en un pueblo Yanomami a bordo de Río
Casiciare, cerca de Brasil. Se me toleraba a fotografiar la ceremonia de un aniversario de la muerte de un shaman... una ceremonia que duró toda la noche con cantos, encantamientos, y algunas danzas
en torno al fuego. ¡A partir de un momento no pude sino observar y escuchar lo que pasaba ante mi!
Unico inolvidable, sobre todo los espléndidos bordes que jumbrosos de las mujeres... y ningún registro audio... qué lastima!!!
