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. ICP is proud to be the first U.S. venue of this momentous exhibition, which is curated by Lélia Wanick Salgado.

 
Salgado’s quest to capture nature in its original state began in 2004. During his travels across the globe, he 
documented arctic and desert landscapes, tropical rainforests, marine and other wildlife, and communities still 
living according to ancestral traditions. The exhibition is divided into five geographical regions: Sanctuaries, 
Planet South, Africa, Amazonia and Pantanal, and Northern Spaces. Together, the images form a stunning 
mosaic of nature in unspoiled grandeur. Through these photographs, Salgado pays homage to a fragile 
planet he believes we must all protect.
