When I met Sebastião Salgado

In 2014, Sebastião Salgado visited Itamaraty along with Lélia Wanick Salgado - his wife, producer and curator -

and Rodrigo, their son. The worldwide known artist granted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a collection of 24 stunning pictures of Amazonia, a six years long project that brings a powerful and urgent message about the indigenous people and their fragility. 

It was an honor to meet them, to hear Salgado sharing his experiences and to register this unforgettable moment.
