A pet saddleback tamarin hangs on to Yoina Mameria Nontsotega as the Matsigenka girl takes a dip in the Yomibato River, deep inside Peru’s Manú National Park. Photo by Charlie Hamilton James, published in National Geographic.
This is a truly beautiful photo. This is a great example of how different textures can make a black and white photo stunningly vivid. For me, black and white is all about showing off contrast and texture, and this photo does an awesome job of that.
