The investigation of the rite as a photographable object and photography itself as a rite from the performative gesture of photographing are the guidelines of this work. Fruit of an immersion experience with the Huni Kuin people in 2017, and the development of a photographic series carried out in ceremonial circumstances using Amazonian power plants, the story “Ritual Photography: An experience with the Huni Kuin people”.
