About the Author

Sebastião Salgado began his career as a professional photographer in Paris in 1973 and subsequently worked with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos. In 1994 he and his wife Lélia created Amazonas Images, which exclusively handles his work. Salgado’s photographic projects have been featured in many exhibitions as well as books, including Other Americas (1986), Sahel, L'Homme en détresse (1986), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations (2000), The Children (2000), Africa (2007), and Genesis (2013).

Lélia Wanick Salgado studied architecture and urban planning in Paris. Her interest in photography started in 1970.

This is one of those books that you cant get enough of. Its a joy to see Mr Salgado's photographic interpretations of our home planet. What sets his photos apart from other's is his printing skills. The final print is so important, as Adams would say. And the prints in this book are brilliant. One thing to think about before buying this tome, is that this book is huge and heavy. Make sure you have a concrete-reinforced book case before shelving this thing. Highly recommended.

I have a copy of Sebastio Salgado's earlier book, Workers, and bought Genesis as a Christmas gift to myself. I am not disappointed. His black and white photography packs an emotional punch. This book features images of parts of the world relatively untouched by civilization. This includes indigenous human populations. There are few written words but thousands of words defined by the images. I strongly recommend this work. It is not large format, but the images come through nonetheless.

The black and white photographs add to the awe and draw of this album

Though short of the talent of greats such as A. Adams, Bullock, Weston, ..., Salgado is talented the same in the advocating call for respecting, preserving, and providing sound stewardship for our only home. After viewing the show at ICP, NYC, I had to acquire the book to share with others.
