Riassunto: Faces of the Rainforest, Valdir Cruz?s first monograph, is a prophetic portrait of a people on the brink of extinction. The Yanomami, native to Venezuela and Brazil, are believed to be descendants of those who migrated over the Bering Strait some twenty centuries ago, and have been residents of the Amazon for the past 15,000 years. Though they are one of the last remaining societies untouched by modernization, interference from outsiders has incontestably altered the fragile future of the Yanomami, as documented in Darkness in El Dorado by Patrick Tierney. Like Edward S. Curtis? photographs before him, Cruz?s haunting images are made all the more hallucinatory by the knowledge that this ancient culture is about to disappear off the face of the earth.
L'autore: Valdir Cruz, the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, spent eight months among the Yanomami Indians and contributed his photographs to Darkness In El Dorado (Norton), finalist for the 2000 National Book Award in Nonfiction. His work is part of the permanent colelction of The Museum of Modern Art and the Brooklyn Museum, both in NY, among others, and has been exhibited to critical acclaim in galleries in North and South America. Born in Brazil, Cruz lives and works in New York City. Kenneth R. Good lived among the Yanomami in Venezuela from 1975 to 1987. He is the author of Into The Heart: One Man's Pursuit Of Love and Knowledge Among The Yanomami (Prentice-Hall), and his articles have been published worldwide. A National Geographic documentary about his expedition to the Amazon forest, "Yanomami Homecoming," has been shown on the "Explorer" series. Vicki Goldberg is the photography critic for The New York Time, and the author of The Power Of Photography, (Abbeville Press, 1993) and has contributed to Jacques Henri Lartigue, (Bulfinch, 1998). She is also a prestigious exhibit curator who was honored with the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in 1997. Sting is a cofounder of the Rainforest Foundation and a world famous multi-platinum selling recording artist.
