Génesis

Photographs by Sebastião Salgado
29 / 05 / 2015


Sebastião Salgado, one of the most acclaimed Brazilian photographers returns to Lisbon to present his latest work Génesis
The show at the Cordoaria Nacional in Lisbon displays the result of eight years of work and more than 30 voyages throughout the world, where the photographer captured places still untouched. 
Génesis is divided into five sections: South of the Planet, Africa, Sanctuaries, Lands of the North and Amazónia and Pantanal, and can be visited until 2 August 2015.
“In his very characteristic style that gave him the public’s admiration, recurring to large-scale black and white images, with huge impact and beauty, Génesis constitutes simultaneously a felt homage to the planet Earth and an alert for the urgent need to preserve it.”
