New guineans who allegedly are unable to distinguish between a photograph and what is photographed?

"said by jonathan franzen in his collection of essays ""How to be alone.""

Anyone know the origin of this idea? Is this really documented? Of some kinds of natives of anywhere being unable to distinguish between a thing and its representation?"
