Amazon Photography Exhibition

An exhibition bringing together work from two photographers – Sebastião Salgado and Per Anders Pettersson – that highlight the Amazon region and it’s people. The exhibition is in support of Sky Rainforest Rescue.

Sebastião Salgado presents previously unseen work from his ongoing photographic essay Genesis – portraying landscapes in their most pristine state, and the communities still living in them, according to ancient traditions in balance with nature.

In contrast, Per Anders Pettersson presents photographs documenting a recent visit to Acre, North-West Brazil with actress Gemma Arterton, to support Sky Rainforest Rescue. These images illustrate the stark reality, and level of devastation, caused by deforestation – and give an insight into the progress being made through Sky Rainforest Rescue, which sees Sky and WWF working closely with the Acre State Government to protect this precious part of the world.
