Amazon in pictures: Sebastião Salgado's last frontier

Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado spent six years travelling around the Amazon region, capturing images of the forest, rivers and mountains for his latest book, Amazônia. A lifelong advocate for the Amazon's indigenous people, Salgado documented the daily lives of a dozen of the tribes scattered throughout the rainforest - from hunting and fishing expeditions, to dances and rituals. Born in 1944, Salgado left a career in economics to start as a photographer in 1973.
