Sebastião Salgado’s “Genesis”

Legendary social documentary photographer Sebastião Salgado has traveled to over 100 countries, published multiple books, exhibited internationally, won many awards and he’s also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. His work, which examines communities and environments all around the world, is  self-assigned. Following his previous long-term series on global issues, “Workers” (1993) and “Migrations” (2000), “Genesis,” debuts in the United States tomorrow, September 19, at International Center of Photography (ICP). “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,” ICP said in a statement about the exhibition.

“Genesis” runs through January 11, 2015 at ICP in New York City, and includes related programming (lectures and educator-led tours) throughout the run of the show. The exhibition is also accompanied by two publications: GENESIS (Taschen, 2013), a hardcover 520-page book, and GENESIS (Taschen, 2013), a 2-volume 704-page leather/clothbound book which also includes a reading stand. Both editions are edited by Léila Wanick Salgado, the director of Amazonas Images, which she founded with Salgado, and is also the president of the Instituto Terra.
