Throughout his work, Baumgarten reveals the influence of his father’s profession of anthropologist, and his own experience of living among the Amazonian Yanomami tribe in Venezuela. Through his focus on the relationship between the natural landscape and human culture, Baumgarten questions the conventionalisms of Western perception, and occupies a place in the field of artist as ethnologist-anthropologist.
