"It's more important for a photographer to have a very good shoes, than to have a very good camera"
Sebastião Ribeiro Salgado Júnior is a Brazilian social documentary photographer and photojournalist. He has travelled in over 120 countries for his photographic projects. Most of these have appeared in numerous press publications and books. Touring exhibitions of his work have been presented throughout the world.
Genesis is the third long-term series on global issues by world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado (born Brazil, 1944), following Workers (1993) and Migrations (2000). The result of an eight-year worldwide survey, the exhibition draws together more than 200 spectacular black and white photographs of wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, and indigenous peoples—raising public awareness about the pressing issues of environment and climate change. The International Centre of Photography (ICP) is proud to be the first venue in the U.S. to present the momentous exhibition Genesis, which is curated by Lélia Wanick Salgado.
