Photography exhibit inauguration event


Photography exhibit curated by Kleber Naula Yautibug
with the collaboration of Dr. Carmen Martínez Novo

Kleber's story beyond the exhibit: Eulalia, an indigenous woman from the Andes of Ecuador, passed away in the early eighties, but I survived as a three-week-old boy. My grandparents, Tránsito Guacho and Juan Naula, helped raise me. As a college student, I found a few tiny 2x4 inches pictures, and this discovery led me to look for images of my mother. Twenty years later, I found my mother´s, my family’s, and thousands of other photographs that illustrate the history of my community and its relation to protestant missionaries and Peace Corps Volunteers.

I have explored over 10,000 pictures in Utah, Louisiana, and Arizona and selected photographs, personal belongings, and some historical documents for this exhibit. With Professor Carmen Martínez-Novo, I have analyzed concepts such as Kishpichina (forgiveness), the Work Ethic, the Modern Ayllu (family), Makitakuna (Service to others), and Progress and Modernity as they are understood by the members of my community.
