The show

After the Genesis project, dedicated to the most remote regions of the planet to witness their majestic beauty, Salgado undertook a new series of journeys to capture the incredible richness and variety of the Brazilian Amazon forest and the ways of life of its people, settling in their villages for several weeks and photographing different ethnic groups. A project that lasted seven years, during which he photographed the vegetation, the rivers, the mountains and the people who live there.

With over 200 photographs, Amazônia aims to propose a total immersion in the Amazon rainforest, inviting us to reflect on the need to protect it.


The exhibition develops around two themes. The first consists of photographs of landscape settings , placed at different heights and presented in different formats, with sections ranging from Overview of the forest in which the visitor is presented with the Amazon seen from above, to The flying rivers, one of most extraordinary and at the same time least known features of the rainforest, namely the large amount of water that rises towards the atmosphere.

The second group of images is dedicated to the different indigenous populations immortalized by Salgado with the photographs collected in spaces that recall the "ocas", typical indigenous homes, vividly evoking the small and isolated human settlements in the heart of the jungle. Thanks to Salgado we can thus learn about the Awá-Guajá, who number only 450 members and are considered the most threatened tribe on the planet, or the Yawanawá, who, on the verge of disappearing, have regained control of their lands and the spread of their culture , thriving, up to the Korubo, among the tribes with less external contact.

The visit is accompanied by an audio track composed specifically for the exhibition by Jean-Michel Jarre and inspired by the authentic sounds of the forest, such as the rustling of trees, the sounds of animals, the singing of birds or the roar of falling water. peak from the mountains.
