RENOWNED nature photographer, Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis exhibition is on at Natural History Museum from April to September before continuing its world tour to Rio de Janiero, Rome and Paris.
Examining the fragile relationship between nature and the humanity, through a series of 200 epic black and white photographs, Salgado seeks to present nature as untouched from the human world as possible. Following his work through 32 countries in 8 years, Salgado’s exhibition unites landscape, people and wildlife together with tremendous effect.
Speaking about the exhibition Salgado said: “I wanted to present places that were untouched and remain so to this day. I want people to see our planet in another way, to feel moved and be brought closer to it. I want them to become more conscious of the environment, to feel respect for nature because this is something that is relevant to everyone.”
Continuing the museum’s legacy for the world’s best nature photography Genesis runs until 8 September 2013.
