Brazilian photographer Rosa Gauditano chooses Albumen Gallery as gallery partner in Europe
London May 17th 2018
London based Albumen Gallery to represent, exhibit and offer Rosa Gauditano's work to private collectors and public collections
Rosa Gauditano's career spans over four decades. Her work - rooted in documentary photography and social commentary through the medium of photography - forms an important part of Latin American photography alongside names like Sebastião Salgado, Paz Errázuriz, Miguel Rio Branco, Sergio Larrain, Armando Cristeto, Graciela Iturbid. Rosa Gauditano's work is characterised by a high degree of social conscience. She has always used the camera as powerful tool ro speak up for the disenfranchised, helpless and weak - those who are pushed to the margins of society.
At the beginning of her career in the 1970s Brazil was still under a military dictatorship. Early projects like documenting the lives of young prostitutes or lesbian women in Sao Paulo carried considerable risk of prosecution.
Many of her projects have been related to Brazilian culture and it’s native people. Rosa Gauditano is the founder of the NGO “Nossa Tribo” (Our Tribe), which has been created in 2004 to make connections between villages and cities, in order to strengthen indigenous culture through works with photography and video.
Her work has been widely exhibited and published and is held in a number of public and private collection in Brazil, Chile, Mexico, France, Switzerland, Argentina and the USA.
Initially, Albumen Gallery is planning an exhibition and a accompanying book 'Forbidden Lives' later this year. With access to Rosa Gauditano's archive and working with the photographer Albumen Gallery will leverage its international reach to give the Rosa Gauditano's work a wider international exposure.
