London’s Natural History Museum presents renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado’s exhibition “Genesisˮ from 12 April until 8 September, 2013.
Around 200 of Sebastião Salgado’s black-and-white documentary photographs are on show in the exhibition 'Genesis'. They capture some of the furthest and wildest corners of our world, portraying indigenous communities that continue to live in accordance with their ancestral traditions, and showing rare insights into their lands everyday lives. During the 8 years in which Salgado travelled around the world to produce this collection of images, he often stayed with the people he photographed.
The exhibition will showcase, amongst others, photographs of Bushmen of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana; the isolated Zo’é in Brazil; the Nenets of Siberia; and tribes of West Papua: all of these face persecution by governments, the theft of their lands and resources, or the threat of devastating epidemics.
Lélia Wanick Salgado's 520 page book, “Sebastião Salgado. Genesisˮ, is now available at €49.99.
