Internationally renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado presents Amazônia, a series of breath-taking photographs that celebrate the indigenous peoples and varied landscapes of the Brazilian rainforest.

For six years, Salgado worked with twelve different indigenous communities to create this magnificent photography project. The result is over 200 powerful black-and-white photographs that uncover Salgado’s vision of the Amazon when the forest is approaching a crucial tipping point in the fight against climate change.

Delve into stunning portraits of indigenous leaders and their communities, dramatic landscapes taken from intrepid river boat journeys and sweeping aerial shots of the immense waterfalls and stormy skies. Feel immersed in the rainforest through a new soundtrack by renowned composer Jean-Michel Jarre.

The exhibition is curated and designed by Lelia Wanick Salgado.

This exhibition offers an exclusive opportunity to get inside the mind of this great photographer and see nature and humanity in dialogue. Our accompanying event and blog series will include the voices of climate scientists and indigenous activists to delve deeper into why the Amazon is so important to all our lives.
