The photographer: Steven Steinbrecher of Pollock Pines
Behind the lens: On a trip to the islands of Los Uros, a native people who live on floating reeds on Lake Titicaca in Peru at over 13,000 feet, I had the opportunity to meet this very interested and friendly young boy while bargaining with his mother to purchase some wall tapestries. Los Uros are remarkable in that although they live less than 2 miles from the city of Puno, they rarely leave their islands of reeds, unless they are leaving the tribe for good.
