now everyone knows who we are

wij zijn niet langer een onbekend volk_1Going through some of my older etchings, I discovered this one again after a long time, I had almost forgot about it. My etchings were more about things that were going on in the world; they were more political engaged. This print for example is about an article I read in the newspaper; a tribe that lived very deep into the jungle; they weren’t discovered yet until a plane flew above their village and the tribe pointed their arrow at the plane: they had no idea what it was. So after this it was of course very interesting to find out who those people were. After reading this article I thought; that tribe can’t continue their way of living because soon people from the outside world start to arrive, to meet this unknown tribe.
The anonymity of the tribe will just fade away.
