Best Things to Do in Lisbon | Photography
There are always interesting exhibitions going on around Lisbon and for those visiting the city may be the opportunity to see something different. That may be the case for the photography exhibition I'll be presenting this week.
Visão Yanomami - Claudia Andujar (Brazil)
Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa - Arquivo Fotográfico
11 February to 15 April
Integrated in the program of the event "Lisboa Capital Ibero-Americana de Cultura 2017 |" Past and Present ", the exhibition presents a selection of the photographic work of the Brazilian photographer of Swiss origin Claudia Andujar, carried out between the 70's and part of the 80's of the 20th century, while traveling through the Amazon.
The exhibition Visão Yanomami brings together 40 photographs taken from a collection of 100,000 images by the Brazilian photographer, who dedicated several years to this project of revealing the life of the indigenous community.
Although it may seem an ethnographic work, this is an artistic project of the author. To her intention to document the life of the Yanomami people, Claudia Andujar added an elaborated aesthetic that reflects and is enriched by her the past marked by the war and by her own condition of a minority member.
The exhibition is open from Mondays to Saturdays and the entrance is free.
