Pierre Verger (1902-1996) was a French photographer, ethnologist, anthropologist and researcher, a true globetrotter who, falling in love with the city of Salvador, Capital of the State of Bahia, Brazil, settled in the city and developed a vast photographic work of seminal importance for the studies of African influence and heritage in Brazil.
The Embassy of Brazil, the Brazilian Mission to the Organization of American States, the Mayor Office of Salvador and the Art Museum of the Americas are proud to bring to the public in Washington, DC, for the first time, an exhibition showcasing the works of Pierre Verger.
A not to be missed opportunity to delve into one of the most insightful and thought provoking views on the African influence on Brazil.
