Sebastio 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 therean irreplaceable treasure of humanity. In the books 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 worlds 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 Ashninka, the Yawanaw, the Suruwah, the Zo, the Kuikuro, the Waur, the Kamayur, the Korubo, the Marubo, the Aw, and the Macuxitheir 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. Sebastio Salgado has dedicated this book to the indigenous peoples of Brazils 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. Amaznia must live on. INSTITUTO TERRA Founded in 1998 at Aimors in the state of Minas Gerais, Instituto Terra is the culmination of Llia Wanick Salgado and Sebastio Salgados lifelong activism and work as cultural documentarians. Through a scientific program of planting and raising saplings, the organization has performed a miraculous reforestation of the once infertile region and furthered the Salgados mission of reversing the damage done to our planet. TASCHEN is proud to reach carbon zero status through our continued partnership.

Sebastio Salgado has spent more than two decades documenting the complex lives of Indigenous Amazonian people as they stand strong in the face of unrelenting colonial forces. * Scientific American * Superb.. Salgado mythologises the landscapes he photographs. * * A revealing and intimate study. * * If one of the purposes of art is to help us see the world around us, then Sebastio Salgados photographs in Amaznia does so in the most spectacular way imaginable. * * In over 500 pages of stunning and captivating photos and text, Salgado delivers a piercing look at a lost world, still surviving but under immense threat. * * If Salgados book Genesis was a quest to document places on Earth unblemished by humans, his latest volume Amaznia speaks to the idea that humans can live on this planet in a sustainable way, through profiling the forests indigenous communities, and offering fresh perspectives on the forest itself. * * Amaznia, a stunning succession of black and white panoramas. Looking through his images, I feel the same awe I would feel in front of sublime paintings: serpentine rivers flow through seemingly limitless forests, sheer-sided rock escarpments vanish into skies, and apocalyptic clouds loom over wispy treetops. * The Guardian * Capture[s] the sheer scale of the still-unspoiled heart of this wilderness. * The Guardian * [Sebastio Salgado] spent six years capturing the Amazon rainforest and its Indigenous inhabitants, making a case for their ecological and cultural importance. * The New York Times * This book is a powerfully persuasive voice in an increasingly urgent campaign. * The Times * An exceptional book on the beauty of this almost lost paradise, threatened by a galloping deforestation. * Le Soir * This book is dedicated to the indigenous peoples of Brazils 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 planets 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. * Sebastio Salgado and Llia Wanick Salgado *
