In 124 photographs, Milton Kam offers a portrait of Suriname’s indigenous peoples as they adapt to life in the 21st century.

From traditional living in the Amazonian rainforest to city-life in the melting pot of its capital city, Paramaribo.  Become a witness to the inauguration of a new chief,  a lifeguard watching over bathers,  a representative of the indigenous peoples at the UN, women harvesting palm fruit in the rainforest, children swimming in a wild river,  and a newlywed couple’s first kiss.

POINTS OF RECOGNITION is the first photo book ever that portrays the everyday life of Suriname’s indigenous peoples.
