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 universe of the forest, 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 the fragility of this ecosystem, showing that in the protected areas where the Indian communities, the ancestral guardians, live, the forest has suffered almost no damage and invites us to see, listen and reflect on the ecological situation and the relationship that people have with it today.
