An exemplar of the tradition of 'concerned photography', Sebastião Salgado is one of the most widely-respected of contemporary photojournalists. His in-depth bodies of work document the lives of people the world over, finding beauty, strength and hope even in those in the bleakest of circumstances. In Sebastião Salgado’s acclaimed and renowned photographic career presenting humanity and the natural world from every conceivable region, three long-term projects stand out: “Workers,” documenting the vanishing way of life of laborers across the world; “Migrations,” a tribute to humanity’s mass journeys; and “Genesis.” This newest project is the result of an ambitious eight-year expedition to rediscover the landscapes, animals, and people that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society. This body of work is conceived as a potential path to humanity’s rediscovery of itself in a pristine nature. The “Genesis” project, along with the Salgados’ charity Instituto Terra and his role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, are dedicated to showing the beauty of our planet, reversing the damage done to it, and preserving it for the future.

Sebastião Salgado was born on February 8th, 1944 in Aimorés, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. He lives in Paris. Having studied economics, Salgado began his career as a professional photographer in 1973 in Paris, working with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos upress publications, have also been presented in books such as "Other Americas (1986)," "Sahel: l’homme en détresse (1986)," "Sahel: el fin del camino (1988)," "Workers (1993)," "Terra (1997)," "Migrations and Portraits (2000)," and "Africa (2007)." Touring exhibitions of this work have been, and continue to be, presented throughout the world. The “Genesis” project, along with the Salgados’ charity Instituto Terra and his role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, are dedicated to showing the beauty of our planet, reversing the damage done to it, and preserving it for the future.
