38 black and white photographs by renowned Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado focused on the abuses to which nature is currently being subjected are featured at the City of Arts and Sciences’ Promenade of the Cypress Trees.
“Genesis” is a free exhibition available from July 26 to August 30. The photographs have been selected by the artist’s wife, Lélia Wanick Salgado, and include landscapes, animals, and people which have been able to escape the influence of the modern world in polar regions, forests and tropical savannas.
Salgado started this eight-year project in 2004. Since then, and until 2012, the photographer made a total of 32 trips visiting places such as Antarctica, Madagascar, Botswana, Alaska, Siberia, and the Amazon rain forest.
