From January to May 2020, the Fondation Cartier pour líart 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 Comiss„o Prů Yanomami (CCPY), Andujar has played a fundamental role in the recognition of their territory by the Brazilian government. This exhibition highlights Andujarís 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 Andujarís 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 artistís commitment to their cause and the history of one of the last tribes of the Amazon rainforest.
