Sebastião Salgado’s striking black and white photography of the nature and people who call the Amazon rainforest home captures the beauty and fragility of one of the planet’s most biodiverse ecosystems. For six years he travelled the Brazilian Amazon and photographed this extraordinary region: the rainforest, the rivers, the mountains, the people who live there—this irreplaceable treasure of humanity in which the immense power of nature is felt like nowhere else on earth.
Britten Sinfonia celebrates the publication of a new book of the images he captured with this thought-provoking event blending live music and photography, which opens with a talk from Sebastião Salgado about this unique project.
Find out more about the photographer in this recent Guardian article and in a video produced by New Scientist.
