this young boy lives along the Amazon river in Yamamono, two hours from Iquitos, Peru. He was hiding in the family boat when our little motor boat approached and progressively came out of his hide as I was talking to him about the camera I was holding. He went from being intrigued to offering his beautiful, infectious smile, which reflects the freshness and happiness of childhood despite adverse living conditions.
Location: Yamamono, Peruvian Amazon
