Sebastião Salgado: GENESIS Genesis is the latest, most ambitious and deeply personal project by world renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado. Already four years in the making, with four more to follow, this body of work is epic in scale and significant in intention: "I have named this project GENESIS because my aim is to return to the beginnings of our planet: to the air, water and fire that gave birth to life, to the animal species that have resisted domestication, to the remote tribes whose 'primitive' way of life is still untouched, to the existing examples of the earliest forms of human settlement and organisation. A potential path towards humanity's rediscovery of itself. So many times I've photographed stories that show the degradation of the planet. I thought the only way to give us an incentive, to bring hope, is to show the pictures of the pristine planet - to see the innocence. And then we can understand what we must preserve." Salgado's documentary work has been exhibited and collected internationally since 1977, featured in newspapers and magazines all over the world, and has formed the basis of several monographs. In addition, he holds a post as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. HackelBury Fine Art will exhibit twenty previously unseen works from this series, all original silver gelatin prints, signed by the artist. Prices start at £3000 including frame and VAT.
