- “…What we have here are images that are seen as big as the life they depict, where the viewer becomes an integral part of the panorama, spread out in humongous majesty! What is shown in the book is what must be preserved and you understand that Salgado and TASCHEN are contributing to the awareness about the world we live in, and questioning how we live in it without giving something back…GENESIS is a photographic concerto from two men who took the risk of brining immortality to a morally wounded planet…”
- “Educational institutions must buy this book for their libraries…The reader will be held by the sheer engagement of the contents of the book. And what a book! Salgado’s magnum opus is breath-taking in its scope. It’s a book to be read slowly and thoughtfully, holding the reader spellbound, with all images and no copy. A strange combination of beautiful vision and inspiration leads one to turn the pages. If you are passionate about photography you must buy this book.”

Salgado’s Masterpiece: GENESIS – Earth Eternal
The companion volume to the world’s best attended photo show
On over 30 trips—by foot, light aircraft, boats, canoes, and even balloons, through extreme temperatures and in sometimes dangerous conditions—Salgado has created a collection of images showing us nature, animals, and indigenous peoples in such intense beauty it takes our breath away. The reach is truly global. Through Salgado’s lens, one discovers the animal species and volcanoes of the Galápagos; the penguins, sea lions, cormorants, and whales of the South Atlantic; Brazilian alligators and jaguars; and African lions, leopards, and elephants. We travel over icebergs in the Antarctic, the volcanoes of Central Africa, the ravines of the Grand Canyon, and the glaciers of Alaska. We encounter the Stone Age Korowai people of West Papua, nomadic Dinka cattle farmers in Sudan, Nenets and their reindeer herds in the Arctic Circle, as well as the Mentawai jungle communities on islands west of Sumatra.
In characteristic monochrome, Salgado’s painterly notes are perfectly tuned to these sublime scenes, capturing sweeping aerial panoramas as much as the most intricate details and textures, from a reptilian skin to the fur coat of the Nenet people of northern Siberia. The exquisitely reproduced images are arranged not by theme but rather conceived as a journey around the globe, immersing them in Salgado’s vision of the Earth’s mesmerizing scale, order, and beauty.
This two-volume SUMO-size Art Edition is designed and edited by Lélia Wanick Salgado and numbered and signed by Sebastião Salgado. Leather-bound, it is presented with a bookstand in cherry wood veneer designed by Tadao Ando and a clothbound caption book explaining each stunning shot.
