Sebastião Salgado. Amazônia. Art Edition ‘The Paraná connecting the Rio Negro with the Cuyuní River’

Size Guide

ABOUT:

Sebastião Salgado traveled the Brazilian Amazon and photographed the unparalleled beauty of this extraordinary region for six years: the forest, the rivers, the mountains, the people who live there—an irreplaceable treasure of humanity. The connection to nature is further echoed in architect Renzo Piano's bookstand designed specifically for the Amazônia SUMO project. The open pages of the book almost look like an albatross while flying.

Sebastião Salgado has dedicated this book to the indigenous peoples of Brazil’s Amazon region: “My wish, with all my heart, with all my energy, with all the passion I possess, is that in 50 years’ time this book will not resemble a record of a lost world. Amazônia must live on.”
