Salgado’s long-term photographic project GENESIS presents images of areas of the world that remain unharmed by human interference or exploitation. The images call for the preservation of these places. 

“Genesis is an attempt to portray the beauty and the majesty of regions that are still in a pristine condition, areas where landscapes and wildlife are still unspoiled, places where human communities continue to live according to their ancient culture and traditions. Genesis is about seeing and marvelling, about understanding the necessity for the protection of all this; and finally it is about inspiring action for this preservation.” (Amazonas Images)
