Explore the powerful photographs of artist and activist Claudia Andujar, who uses her camera as a tool to drive political change for the Yanomami peoples.
The Yanomami are one of the largest groups of indigenous peoples in Brazil and Claudia Andujar has been collaborating with them for fifty years, documenting and defending their culture and home. Her life and work come under the lens in an extensive exploration of her mesmerising imagery.
In a series of 200 photographs, an audio-visual installation and a collection of drawings by the Yanomami, the exhibition demonstrates Claudia Andujar’s unwavering commitment to art and activism and her long enduring relationship with the Yanomami community.
There is a focus on the early photos from her career, which show the challenge of depicting such a complex culture, combined with images that demonstrate direct moments of activism and resistance. This exhibition amplifies the voices of the Yanomami and demonstrates the challenges they continue to face through the lens of a photographer who has dedicated her career to bringing their stories to the world.
