Sebastião Salgado

Genesis

12 June — 14 September, 2014

Fotografiska presents the Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado’s comprehensive work Genesis, an exhibition designed and curated by Lélia Wanick Salgado.

EXHIBITION

It is the result of an eight-year long journey through some thirty countries to places and people who have escaped the influence of modern civilisation. These magnificent images depict a world we may be about to lose in our quest for material happiness. It is a celebration of our origins and a reminder of what has been entrusted to our care.
