Amazônia – Schools

World-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado presents Amazônia, a breathtaking photography exhibition celebrating the indigenous peoples and varied landscapes of the Brazilian rainforest.

For seven years, Salgado worked with twelve indigenous communities to create this magnificent photography exhibition. The result is an incredible collection of powerful black-and-white photographs that reveal Salgado's vision of the Amazon when the forest is approaching a crucial tipping point in the fight against climate change.

Feel immersed in the Amazon rainforest as you delve into dramatic landscapes and sweeping aerial shots of immense waterfalls and stormy skies and discover the stunning portraits of indigenous leaders and their communities, accompanied by a soundtrack evoking the sounds of the forest by renowned composer Jean-Michel Jarre.
