Genesis by Sebastião Salgado at Palazzo della Ragione Fotografia

Genesis is a long-term photographic project, in line with the main bodies of work carried out previously by Sebastião Salgado; for example, the series of reportages presented in Workers or the series on the theme of the population movements around the world, that appeared in Migrations.

This new project is about our planet earth, nature and its beauty, and what remains of it today despite the manifold destruction caused by human activity. Genesis is an attempt to portray the beauty and the majesty of regions that are still in a pristine condition, areas where landscapes and wildlife are still unspoiled, places where human communities continue to live according to their ancient culture and traditions.

Genesis is about seeing and marvelling, about understanding the necessity for the protection of all this; and finally it is about inspiring action for this preservation. The shooting of this series of photographic reportages began in 2004 and is due for completion in 2012. Like other work of Sebastião Salgado, the Genesis reportages have been, and continue to be, published in, among others, France’s Paris Match, the USA’s Rolling Stone, Spain’s La Vanguardia, Portugal’s Visão, the United Kingdom’s The Guardian and in Italy’s La Repubblica.

Once the project is completed, an international presentation of the images will be made in the form of one or several books and exhibitions. Until now twenty reportages have been completed: they include the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, Antarctica and the Bushmen of Botswana. The Genesis project is being produced with the support of Christensen Fund, of Susan and Mark Buell in the USA and of especially the Vale company in Brazil.
