“Amazonia” will run from June 11 through July 18 at LYDm and again from
Curated by The University of Oregon Museum’s executive director Jill Hartz, “Amazonia” documents one of the world’s greatest remaining natural ecosystems-the headwaters of the Amazon River in Peru.
“Untouched ecosystems are the lungs of our world, and we destroy their forests and pollute their waters at our own peril,” said Hartz. “This project explores themes of sustainability, ecology and man’s impact on the natural world.”
“Amazonia” is supported by the Oakwood Foundation with additional support from Canon USA, Carol Angle, Ruth Cross, Robert Strini, Linda Wachtmeister and Sharon Ungerleider. Cosponsored at the University of Oregon by the Coeta and Donald Barker Foundation, Photography at Oregon and JSMA members.
