I really didn’t know what to expect in this exhibition at The Barbican Curve. The photography installation of Claudia Andujar: The Yanomami Struggle takes up the whole of the space, feeling quite immersive.
Andujar’s imagery uses colour filters amongst other photographic techniques to convey the other-worldliness of this community.
Her photographs give an idea of the connection the Yanomami have to their environment and the blurred boundaries between different states of being.
I thought this photo below was a mountain but it is a hut with light shining through from the inside.
The child below appears to be floating within the expanse of a communal hut.
The Yanomami’s is a magical and precious way of life with immense respect for the forest, something we can learn so much from.
