Photography Exhibition: Amazonas (The Amazon)
The photography exhibition, "Coletivo Amazonas - Olhar Sem Fronteeras" (Collective Amazon - Look without Borders), which is part of the project Expofoto, is on display July 23 at Oi Futuro, the cultural center of Flamengo. The public is invited to view (via vivid photography) the daily life in the Amazonas state, both of the Amazon forest and the urban landscape.
Agilson Peter is in charge of curating this exhibition which includes photographs from Alberto Cesar Araujo, Alex Pazzuelo, Lula Sampaio, Maria di Andrea Hagge, Raymond Valentine, Raphael Ahmed, Ruth Jucá and Ricardo de Oliveira.
(Quotation Translated) "The group (Collective Amazonas) was born from my desire to show the photographic production of these talented photographers beyond the borders of our region. The Amazonian photograph has been, in addition to an inner experience, a reflection on this mythical world where we came from: the Amazon. Our native production brings the wonder of the city versus the Amazon Forest, in a language that covers both fine art and photojournalism", explains Maria Di Andrea Hagge, one of the artists of the Collective Amazon exhibit.
The work of the Collective blends elements of photojournalism and artistic photography and aims to inspire reflections about the sustainability and the development of riverside communities. The artists of the collective Amazonas live in the northern part of the country and give us the opportunity to see images of an "unknown Amazon".
Free entrance. Tuesday to Sunday.
