The Sebastiao Salgado Genesis Exhibition takes place at the Natural History Museum. The exhibition has been running since Thursday 11th April and will run until Sunday 8th September 2013. Lovers of landscape photography will have to put these dates into their diaries as this extraordinary exhibition reveals incredible images of landscapes, wildlife and remote communities from around the world.
Sebastiao Salgado was born in 1944 in Brazil and has long been regarded as an extraordinary photographer, and has been given numerous major photography awards in recognition of his work. Starting out as a social documentary photographer, he has since travelled the world, visited over 100 countries for his projects.
The exhibition showcases his latest work which looks at global issues and is his third long term project in this endeavour, the previous two being Workers and Migrations which have since been published as books.
This exhibition is the result of eight years work, and displays images from 32 countries across the globe. These photographs are mostly in black and white and portray stunning landscapes from untouched corners of the planet. Yet, they also give viewers an insight into the cultures of indigenous communities who have lived according to ancient ancestral traditions as part of nature. So why not take a walk round The Sebastiao Salgado Genesis Exhibition, and allow this world famous photographer to illustrate the beauty of nature and the balance it has with its human relationships.
