Earth in Black and White by Sebastião Salgado

Genesis is the third long-term series on global issues by photographer Sebastião Salgado (born in Brazil, 1944), following Workers (1993) and Migrations (2000). The result of an eight-year worldwide survey, the exhibition draws together more than 200 spectacular black and white photographs of wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, and indigenous peoples—raising public awareness about pressing issues of the environment and climate change.

From 2004 to 2011, Salgado visited 32 locations around the planet, including the Kalahari Desert, Indonesian jungle, the Galapagos Islands, Madagascar, Alaska and the Antarctic, as well as Kamchatka and Wrangel Island in Russia.

Sebastião Salgado is one of the most renowned contemporary artists, and this exhibition, which has been shown in many places around the world, is a great opportunity to see his pictures. Salgado and his work were the focus of the film The Salt of the Earth (2014), directed by Wim Wenders and Salgado's son, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado.
