Sebastião Salgado is a Brazilian social documentary photographer and photojournalist, considered by many as one of the great photographers of our times. His work is revered amongst the public and critics alike and his current Genesis exhibition is sensational. Using black and white photography Salgado has created a collection of awe-inspiring images showing us nature, animals and indigenous people from unimaginably remote places. He gives us a rare glimpse into the hidden treasures of our world.
Genesis is the accumulation of over eight years work and exploration during which Salgado made 32 trips to some of the most extreme and far-flung corners of the planet. This exhibition brings together over 200 works of wildlife, landscapes, seascapes and indigenous people. It also aims to raise public awareness about the pressing issues of environment and climate change. It is a reminder of the breathtaking beauty that still exists on our planet.
Genesis is now in Lisbon, a great opportunity to check it now.
