Witte de With, in collaboration with Jan van Eyck Academie, is launching an experimental publication of unedited and unpublished material of the Romanian photographer based in Venezuela, Thea Segall (Burdujeni, Romania, 1929 - Caracas, Venezuela, 2009).
In relation to An exhibition with art installations by Susana Mejía, Pamela Rosenkranz, and Anicka Yi, the publication looks into Segall’s trips to the Amazon in the 60’s, where she used the camera as a tool for an ethnographic research to understand sociocultural practices and the lifestyles of indigenous communities.
