This exhibition showcases the results of an eight-year long project that saw photo-journalist Sebastião Salgado discover landscapes, wildlife and communities around the world that have been untouched by modern life. There are 200 black-and-white photographs on display, showing tribes still living by ancient values and landscapes that demonstrate the awesomeness of nature. The exhibition premieres in London before going on to locations around the world, and follows on from Salgado's previous explorations of global issues, which concentrated on workers and migration.
