Emilio Azevedo (b. 19__) is a visual artist and photographer whose work studies the cultural and historical foundations of contemporary ecological crises. His current research – started at Arles’ Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Photographie and supported by a range of cultural institutions in France and Belgium – focuses on the ‘civilization’ process that took place in the Brazilian Amazon at the turn of the 20th century. At the intersection of official histories, erased memories and personal narratives, Azevedo’s work explores the ecological, social and spiritual mutations that this territory underwent.
