Mark Nozeman in Tropenmuseum Amsterdam

June 1, 2007 until January 27, 2008
Tropenmuseum Amsterdam

The exhibition 'Grande Sertao' at the Tropenmuseum will appeal to people with an interest in photography, Brazil, literature and poetry. The pictures on display are inspired by the work of the Brazilian author João Guimarães Rosa, who, as a country doctor, gained deep and extensive knowledge of the sparsely populated interior of Brazil and the people who live there. Rosa describes the rigours and hardships of life in this inhospitable, dry region: the Grande Sertao.
