For six years Sebastião Salgado travelled in the Brazilian Amazon, photographing the forest, the rivers, the mountains and the people who live there.

The exhibition, premiering in Italy with more than 200 works immerses us in the forest universe, bringing together Salgado’s impressive photographs with the concrete sounds of the forest. The rustling of trees, the cries of animals, birdsong or the roar of water coming down from mountain tops, collected on-site, make up a soundscape, created by Jean-Michel Jarre.

The exhibition highlights this ecosystem’s fragility, showing that in the protected areas where the indigenous communities, ancestral guardians, live the forest has suffered almost no damage. Salgado invites us to see, listen and reflect on the ecological situation and the relationship that people have with it today.
