Caio Reisewitz is known for his large-scale photographs portraying Brazilian landscapes, urban spaces, and architecture. ‘Altamira’ documents the ecological and human devastation caused by the Belo Monte Dam in the Amazon. Reisewitz conducted a study in 2013 of the city of Altamira in northern Brazil. He noted the disorderly growth, destruction of forested areas, and neglect of the indigenous community that would occur in the wake of the dam’s construction. He returned in 2018 to capture the environmental impact of the now mostly completed dam, which has dramatically altered the natural landscape and displaced riverside communities in this conflict-ridden territory.
