Sebastiao Salgado. Amazonia Summary

Sebastiao Salgado. Amazonia by Sebastiao Salgado

Sebastiao 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.

In the book's foreword Salgado writes: For me, it is the last frontier, a mysterious universe of its own, where the immense power of nature can be felt as nowhere else on earth. Here is a forest stretching to infinity that contains one-tenth of all living plant and animal species, the world's largest single natural laboratory.

Salgado visited a dozen indigenous tribes that exist in small communities scattered across the largest tropical rainforest in the world. He documented the daily life of the Yanomami, the Ashaninka, the Yawanawa, the Suruwaha, the Zo'e, the Kuikuro, the Waura, the Kamayura, the Korubo, the Marubo, the Awa, and the Macuxi-their warm family bonds, their hunting and fishing, the manner in which they prepare and share meals, their marvelous talent for painting their faces and bodies, the significance of their shamans, and their dances and rituals.

Sebastiao 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. Amazonia must live on.Soon available in a Collector's Edition including a bookstand designed by Renzo Piano and four Art Editions, each including the Renzo Piano bookstand and a signed print

Sebastiao Salgado. Amazonia Reviews

This book is dedicated to the indigenous peoples of Brazil's Amazon region. It is a celebration of the survival of their cultures, customs, and languages. It is also a tribute to their role as the guardians of the beauty, natural resources, and biodiversity of the planet's largest rainforest in the face of unrelenting assault by the outside world. We are eternally grateful to them for allowing us to share their lives. * Sebastiao Salgado and Lelia Wanick Salgado *
An exceptional book on the beauty of this almost lost paradise, threatened by a galloping deforestation. * Le Soir *
