GÉNESIS
Sebastião Salgado
(UK: Taschen, @TASCHEN, 2013; USA: Taschen, @TASCHEN, 2013)

This book is the result of an epic eight-year expedition to rediscover the mountains, deserts and oceans, the animals and peoples that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society the land and life of a still-pristine planet. Some 46% of the planet is still as it was in the time of genesis. We must preserve what exists. The GÉNESIS project, along with the Salgados Instituto Terra, are dedicated to showing the beauty of our planet, reversing the damage done to it, and preserving it for the future.

Over 30 trips travelled by foot, light aircraft, seagoing vessels, canoes, and even balloons, through extreme heat and cold and in sometimes dangerous conditions, Salgado created a collection of images showing us nature, animals, and indigenous peoples in breathtaking beauty. Mastering the monochrome, Salgado brings black-and-white photography to a new dimension; the tonal variations in his works, the contrasts of light and dark, recall the works of Old Masters.
