The Lost Amazon

Description: Part of Capture: EDG Photo Portfolio

Photographs by Richard Evans Schultes

Richard Evans Schultes (1915-2001) was probably the greatest explorer of the Amazon. He was regarded among anthropologists and seekers alike as the "father of ethnobotany." Taking what was meant to be a short leave from Harvard in 1941, he surveyed the Amazon basin almost continuously for 12 years, during which time he lived among two dozen different Indian tribes, mapped rivers, secretly sought sources of rubber for the U.S. government during WWII, and collected and classified 30,000 botanical specimen, including 2,000 new medicinal plants. Schultes chronicled his stay there in hundreds of remarkable photographs of the people of the Amazon, their ceremonies and their environment.
