Exhibition Amazonia - Photographies Sebastião SALGADO
From date 27 June to date 30 November 2022
From 27 June to 30 November, the Palais des Papes presents the Amazônia exhibition by the famous Franco-Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado: more than 200 photographs, accompanied by projections, with an original creation by Jean-Michel Jarre.
The result of seven years of photographic expeditions by the great photographer Sebastião Salgado, this exhibition offers an immersion in the exuberant vegetation of the Amazonian forest and the daily life of its local populations. Punctuated by a sound creation specially composed by Jean-Michel Jarre and inspired by the concrete sounds of the forest, the exhibition aims to reveal to visitors a part of the magic of the Amazon.
