‘The Amahuaca of the Amazon’ – Photography by Katherine Needles

6 July – 13 July 2017 at the Silk Mill Gallery, Frome

This will be a debut solo exhibition of images taken over the period of three months living in the Ucayali Province of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest documenting an indigenous community known as the Amahuaca in 2011. Shot in villages along the Inuya river deep in the jungle, the images are a portrayal of how a community survive and thrive living off the land, retaining their traditional ways of life whilst negotiating the influnece of ‘Development’ and of outsiders such as loggers, oil companies and surrounding indigenous groups.
