Salgado Plantación de Té

Salgado Namib Dunas

The Sand Sea in Namibia, 2005. Famous for putting a human face on economic and political oppression in developing countries, Mr. Salgado is photographing the most pristine vestiges of nature he can find: pockets of the planet unspoiled by modern development, Jori Finkel writes.

Salgado Antártida Témpano

An iceberg in Antartica, photographed in 2005. Yet rather than document the effects of, say, pollution or global warming directly, he is photographing natural subjects that he believes have somehow “escaped or recovered from” such changes. Photo: Sebastião Salgado/Peter Fetterman Gallery

Salgado Sudan herds

A cattle camp in southern Sudan in 2006. “Genesis” is his globally minded, photo-driven counterpart to the Instituto Terra in in southeastern Brazil, founded by Mr. Salgado and his wife, which was created to undertake an ambitious reforestation project. As Ian Parker wrote, Mr. Salgado is more than a photojournalist, “much the way Bono is something more than a pop star.” Photo: Sebastião Salgado/Peter Fetterman Gallery

Salgado niños en Cueva

Boys fleeing from Southern Sudan to avoid being forced to fight in the civil war, and heading for the refugee camps of Northern Kenya in 1993. “Genesis” is not so much a departure from his previous work than it might at first seem. He still works in black and white, and his work still culminates in photo essays that reveal something about an entire species. His fundamental subject is social systems, and now ecosystems, Jori Finkel writes. Herdsmen driving their cattle into a camp in southern Sudan in 2006. His longtime gallerist, Peter Fetterman, also sees a strong through line in his career. While initially surprised by the turn to lush landscapes, he called Mr. Salgado’s empathy for subjects an overarching trait. “Other photojournalists go in and out for a day,” Mr. Fetterman said. “Sebastião goes and lives with his subjects for weeks before he even takes a picture.” Photo: Sebastião Salgado/Peter Fetterman Gallery “Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe,” 2008. Mr. Salgado’s goal for “Genesis” is to produce a total of 32 visual essays, which he hopes to display in major public parks as well as at various museums starting in 2012. “It’s my dream to show the work in Central Park, not in some building but outside among the trees,” he said.
