Vintage photos offer glimpse of Upper Amazon 150 years ago.

Quote
A set of pictures by the German photographer Albert Frisch have sold at auction in Sotheby's in New York.

The pictures were taken more than 150 years ago during an expedition to Brazil's Upper Amazon and are believed to be the earliest photographic record of the area. Frisch's pictures capture both the natural landscape and its indigenous inhabitants of among others the Ticuan, Miranha and Caixana tribes.

The collection comprises 98 albumen prints which were first published in 1869 by publisher Georg Leuzinger.
