Photo exhibition: Amazonia - Sebastiao Salgado
Sebastião Salgado is a well-known contemporary photographer who knows how to capture the finite nature of our planet as few others can. The Brazilian-born photojournalist has dedicated his successful exhibition, ‘Amazônia,’ to the largest rainforest in the world and its indigenous inhabitants. To date, his exhibition has already had more than 1,4 million visitors worldwide. His photographs transport viewers into the heart of a lush and ecologically diverse realm, conveying the majesty of vast plains and imposing mountains of the Amazon region. The exhibition also captures sounds of great diversity, including rainstorms, waterfalls and flowing rivers. And it documents lives of indigenous people whose existence is perilously dependent on a fragile ecosystem. From May 31, the ‘Amazônia’ exhibition will make a guest appearance at MAAG Halle in Zurich under the patronage of Zurich Insurance Group. As testimony to its popularity, the acclaimed exhibition has already welcomed almost one million visitors in the five cities where it has appeared.
His life is also portrayed in an award winning documentary - The salt of the earth.
