A Changing Environment: An Exhibition
native agency
Sep 9, 2020
Native exhibits brand new work by Native photographers in an online exhibition in collaboration with German NGO Grun Berlin celebrating A Changing Environment. Originally set to take place in Germany, it has been reimagined digitally due to the pandemic.

How are we defining environment? The environment can be seen as a physical place, a natural or ecological place or a historical environment, a space where a person's events take place. Environment is everything around us, including our bodies - a person's beliefs, actions, gestures and orientations depend on their environment. The physical, the communal, the societal with its limitations or liberations - a changing environment that shapes who we are as human beings.

The work of six female-identifying Native photographers from Latin America are featured in this exhibit as they explore the vast notions of a changing environment.

Celeste Alonso (Argentina), by presenting a work in progress about places, people, and sensations of letting yourself be led.

Camila Falcao (Brazil), by documenting chains of affection and physical, emotional support between non-binary young people and cisgender girls.

Liliana Merizalde (Colombia), by a conversation between the body, the environment, the territory, the identity, social and political context through self construction.

Daniela Olave (Colombia), by considering our realities, our perception of time, and what provides people a sense of purpose.

Alejandra Rajal (Mexico), by assessing community, intricacies and rituals, and what it means to find brotherhood.

Ana Vallejo (Colombia), by visually investigating an informal neighborhood, displaced families, complicated histories, and disputed territory.
