10TH CARMIGNAC PHOTOJOURNALISM AWARD - AMAZÔNIA
Exhibition: 30 Nov 2019 – 10 Jan 2020
Hôtel de Ville
5, rue Lobau
The project carried out by Tommaso Protti, laureate of the 10th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the Amazon and the issues related to its deforestation, goes beyond a narrow understanding of photo reportage. In his series, produced with the support of the prestigious Award, Protti documents the deforestation of the Amazon and bears witness to the environmental, humanitarian and social crisis resulting from this catastrophe. His deeply personal vision resonates with current events and concerns about the future of our planet and its ecosystem.
