Summer Event – Amazonia exhibition by Sebastiao Salgado

June 12, 2022 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This is a rare opportunity to see work by a world class photographer Sebastiao Salgado in Manchester.

For seven years, Salgado worked with twelve indigenous communities to create this magnificent photography exhibition. The result is an incredible collection of powerful black-and-white photographs that reveal Salgado’s vision of the Amazon when the forest is approaching a crucial tipping point in the fight against climate change.

Feel immersed in the Amazon rainforest as you delve into dramatic landscapes and sweeping aerial shots of immense waterfalls and stormy skies and discover the stunning portraits of indigenous leaders and their communities, accompanied by a soundtrack evoking the sounds of the forest by renowned composer Jean-Michel Jarre.

The exhibition is free but operates timed tickets so the idea is for those attending to book the 12:00-12:45 slot so we can view the exhibition together. There is an on site café for us to have a chat afterwards.

The area is rich in photographic opportunities and we could arrange an earlier meeting time to plan a photo shoot prior to entering the exhibition.

For more information and to book tickets click here.

NOTE: You will need to book BOTH a free entry ticket to the Exhibition (12:00-12:45 slot) AND a free entry ticket to the museum (say 11:30-12:00 or earlier, it’s just an arrival slot)
Museum entry is free but a donation to their funds is welcome.

When you book your exhibition ticket, please email Liz ( to let her know that you are going. She can then keep track of who is attending and keep you informed about plans for the day, We may try to fit in a photowalk around the Castlefields Canal Basin area before visiting the exhibition.
