A few weeks ago, access to communities living on the banks of the Rio Negro was limited in an attempt to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Aldeia Cipiá is located on the left bank of Manaus, in the community of Tatulândia, one hour by boat, and gathers 5 different ethnic groups: Desana, Kubeo, Tukano, Tuyuka, and Barasana. There are 50 people, divided among 15 families, who live exclusively from tourism and the sale of handicrafts. Without the income of the community, basic items are already starting to be lacking.
With the help of Thoalamu (tribe chief and healer) from Cipiá Village, we mapped 3 other neighboring communities, Tatuyo, Tuyuka and Desana, where around 120 people live among 30 families.
The donations collected will be destined to the purchase of food, hygiene and cleaning items, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment, such as masks and alcohol gel) and other emergency needs brought by the communities.
For every R$250 donated (~$42.50), you receive 1 printed photo of your choice as a reward.
The images are not signed and there is no limit to copies.
The copies will be printed by Kelly Polato Studio on Matte Fibre paper with the dimensions of 48 x 38 cm. It is important to point out that they do not accompany frame.
The freight is charged separately and will be shipped in cardboard tube. It is possible to send up to 2 images in each tube so as not to compromise the quality of the printed photograph. Delivered by Correios in Brazil and DHL for international shipments.
Printing and postage services will be initiated as soon as possible, depending on health recommendations and traffic restrictions. We count on your patience. Keep an eye on your email and we will send you updates at all times.
