Exposición Génesis. Sebastiâo Salgado. Obra Social "la Caixa" (vídeo sin editar. Material prensa)

Genesis is a stunning mosaic in which nature is portrayed in all its grandeur. In 2004, after devoting nearly three decades to reflecting on human drama and tragedy, the renowned Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado launched this eight-year project, which focuses on the natural beauty found all over our planet. In Salgado’s own words, Genesis is “a visual tribute to the majesty and fragility of the planet Earth; a warning about everything that we risk losing”.

The first destination of the Genesis project was, the Galápagos Islands, which Salgado visited in 2004. Subsequently, until 2012, Salgado made a total of 32 journeys to wild, unspoiled sites around the world, stopping in Antarctica, Madagascar, Botswana, Virunga National Park, where the borders of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda meet, Alaska, the Colorado Plateau in the United States, Siberia and the Amazon rainforest, amongst other places.

This international travelling exhibition, presented for the first time in Spain at CaixaForum Madrid, comprises 245 black and white photographs depicting landscapes, animals and people that have so far managed to escape the long reach of today’s world: polar circles, tropical rainforests, wide savannahs, scorching deserts, glacier-covered mountains and solitary islands.

Sebastião Salgado. Genesis. Dates: from 17 January to 4 May 2014. Place: CaixaForum Madrid (Paseo del Prado, 36, 28014, Madrid). Organised and produced by: ”la Caixa” Foundation. Curator: Lélia Wanick Salgado.
