by Sundaram Tagore Gallery Singapore
Location: Sundaram Tagore Gallery Singapore
Artist(s): Sebastiao SALGADO
Date: 20 May - 6 Jul 2014

Sebastião Salgado, one of the world’s most respected photographers, presents more than fifty stunning black-and-white images from the Genesis series in his first solo gallery exhibition in Singapore.

Genesis, a series that was eight years in the making, comprises hauntingly beautiful photographs of majestic landscapes, serene wildlife and ancient civilizations untouched by modern society. Chronicling surreal icebergs in Antarctica, the isolated Zo’é tribe in Brazil, monumental crevices in Arizona’s Grand Canyon, and Africa’s native animals in Kafue National Park, Zambia, Genesis demonstrates Salgado’s incredible ability to pay homage to unspoiled nature. A selection of iconic works from earlier in his career will be on view also.

Sebastião Salgado has had numerous exhibitions in influential museums around the world, including the Genesis show on view now at the National Museum of Singapore (through July 2014). His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Chicago Art Institute; the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC; and the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art.

Sebastião Salgado and his wife and partner, Lélia Wanick Salgado, founded and run the nonprofit Instituto Terra, an organization focused on reforestation of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil and environmental education.
