Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado presents 'Genesis', a work carried out over eight years of exploring the origins of the world. On a trip to Minas Gerais, to his native Brazil, Salgado was reunited with the deforested land and, along with his wife Lélia Wanick Salgado, decided to restore the rich ecosystem of the farm where he had grown up. This experience was also the start of a series of over 200 black-and-white photographs devoted to landscapes and civilisations that have remained intact and untouched. 'Forty-six percent of the planet is like the day of "Genesis",' says the photographer. 'When I was travelling – on foot, by boat, by plane or balloon – I was also shooting volcanoes, icebergs, deserts and jungles, and I could see that there was a world that hadn't changed over the millennia.' Antarctica; the Falklands; the sanctuaries in Indonesia, Africa and the Kalahari Desert; the landscapes of Alask;a and the Colorado mesa... Salgado takes viewers to vast, remote and silent regions where nature still reigns majestic and fragile, and he pays tribute to 'the splendor of nature'.
