Claudia Andujar: The Yanomami Struggle

Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain / Paris

The Yanomami are an indigenous people who live in the most remote part of the Amazon rainforest—their fortress and their world. They became widely known in the West with the 1968 publication of Yanomamö: The Fierce People, by the late anthropologist Napoleon Chagnon. Meanwhile, documenting them for over five decades, the Swiss-born photographer Claudia Andujar, who settled to Brazil in 1956, has been a fierce voice in defense of Yanomami autonomy and land rights. This exhibition explores the profound relationship between a woman and a people, focused through a lens. —L.J.
