From January to May 2020, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented the first large-scale European retrospective devoted to photographer Claudia Andujar (born 1931). Since the early 1970s, Andujar has been committed to the cause of the Yanomami Indians living in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. A founding member of the Brazilian NGO Comissão Pró Yanomami (CCPY), Andujar has played a fundamental role in the recognition of their territory by the Brazilian government. This exhibition highlights Andujar’s extraordinary contribution to the art of photography and the defense of human rights, as well as the preservation of the environment and cultural diversity. This book presents Andujar’s photography along with excerpts from her notebooks and texts by exhibition curator Thyago Nogueira and Bruce Albert, an anthropologist who spent time living with the Yanomami, as well as a map of Yanomami territory and a chronology that documents both the artist’s commitment to their cause and the history of one of the last tribes of the Amazon rainforest.
