Amazônia

Photographs by Sebastião Salgado

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.
