From 04.12. 2019 to 16.02. 2020 the MEP in Paris presents the exhibition “Amazônia” of Tommaso Protti, Laureat of the 10th Carmignac Photojournalism Award.
Italian photojournalist Tommaso Protti, accompanied by British journalist Sam Cowie, travelled thousands of miles across the Brazilian Amazon to create his reportage. From the eastern region of Maranhão to the western region of Rondônia, through the states of Pará and Amazonas, they portrayed life in modern day Brazilian Amazon, where social and humanitarian crises overlap with the ongoing destruction of the rainforest.
On the occasion of this exhibition, Tommaso Protti’s photographs will be
displayed on the wrought iron grill in front of Paris’ Hôtel de Ville from December 2, 2019, through January 10, 2020.
The MEP opening will take place on Tuesday, December 3rd at 6 pm in attendance of the artist and the mayor of Paris.
