Surrounded by trees, waterfalls and tropical wildlife, this Amazon tribe is a world away from the beaches of Rio. These striking photos show members of the indigenous Dessana tribe, which is situated nearly 3,000 miles away from Brazil's capital. It is only accessible by boat from the city of Manaus.
