Reviews

"Amazônia, 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"
"[Sebastião 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"
"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."-- "Sebastião Salgado and Lélia Wanick Salgado"
"An exceptional book on the beauty of this almost lost paradise, threatened by a galloping deforestation."-- "Le Soir"
"Capture[s] the sheer scale of the still-unspoiled heart of this wilderness."-- "The Guardian"
