Genesis- Sebastião Salgado

I am, like loads of other people, fascinated by the talent and efforts towards a better world of Sebastião Salgado.I learnt about him from my brother Eduardo and I convinced my brother Claudio to purchase and exhibit at my family's school Exodus, A set of 60 photgraphs taken in various parts of the world dealing with social issues.
He works now on Genesis. He finds himself now at Zoé tribe and I hope I sahll bump on him sooner or later. Good Luck and Thanks Sebastião.


I conceive this project as a potential path towards humanity's rediscovery of itself in nature. I have named it Genesis because, as far as possible, I want to return to the beginnings of our planet: to the air, water and fire that gave birth to life; to the animal species that have resisted domestication and are still "wild"; to the remote tribes whose "primitive" way of life is largely untouched; and to surviving examples of the earliest forms of human settlement and organisation. This voyage represents a form of planetary anthropology. Yet it is also designed to propose that this uncontaminated world must be preserved and, where possible, be expanded so that development is not automatically commensurate with destruction.
