Amazônia is a series of breath-taking photographs that celebrate the indigenous peoples and varied landscapes of the Brazilian rainforest, told through the lens of acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado.

Brazilian-born social documentary photographer and photojournalist, Sebastião Salgado worked with 12 different indigenous communities over six years to produce this series of powerful black and white photographs. They tell the urgent story of the forest at a crucial tipping point in the fight against climate change, bringing together 200 images of indigenous leaders, communities, dramatic landscapes, spectacular waterfalls and weather.

The exhibition offers a chance to see behind the lens of a great photographer, exploring the complicated dialogue between humanity and nature at a crucial time in history. The photographs will be accompanied by an immersive forest soundtrack by renowned composer Jean-Michel Jarre.
