Amazônia - Photographs by Sebastião Salgado

Amazônia - Sebastiao Salgado
From 27 June to 30 November, the Palace of the Popes will be the venue efor the exhibition Amazônia by the celebrated French-Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado. Over 200 photographs, accompanied by screenings, and a new creation by Jean-Michel Jarre.
Sebastião Salgado explored the Amazon region in Brazil for over seven years, photographing the forest, the rivers, the mountains and the people who live there. This deep universe, where the immense power of nature can be felt like nowhere else on earth, is the source of the gripping photographs, the images that surged before the photographer's eye.

Accompanied by a sound creation, a veritable world-symphony imagined by Jean-Michel Jarre starting with tangible sounds from the forest, the exhibit shares the voices and words from the Amerindian communities that have been photographed.

Created and designed by Lélia Wanick Salgado, this sense-surround exhibition that takes viewers to the heart of the Amazonian forest is an invitation to see, to hear, and to think about biodiversity and the place for human beings in the living world.

Guided visits are available throughout the entire duration of the exhibition. For more information please see
