Exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian


A few weeks ago I had the great honor of having a 30-image photo exhibit on display at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian. The exhibit was titled “From the Andes to the Amazon: Conservation, Culture and Diversity” and was produced in partnership with the Amazon Conservation Association and the Peruvian Embassy. The prints were up for 8-days in the entrance hall to the museum and an estimated 36,000 people visited the museum during that time. It was an incredible opportunity to share the story of local conservation efforts in the Andes to Amazon region of Southeastern Peru. As a complement to the exhibit, I gave a 45-minute lecture at the museum on my photographic work in Peru, highlighting a few of my favorite conservation projects, from Brazil nut harvesting to Peruvian-run ecotourism efforts.

Here are a few images of the exhibit for my friends across the world:

    Gabby, I found your blog just a few months ago and I’m so glad I did. I always share your updates with our school-aged daughter….”Come and look at these photos!” We just moved out of the D.C. area and now live overseas, but the American Indian museum was one of our favorites. Most sincere congratulations to you on such a well-deserved honor. Thank you for your efforts on conservation around the world. Beth
