  • “It’s a stunning masterpiece — a true book for the ages.”

    — TIME, Kira Pollack, director of photography, New York
  • “Mr. Salgado’s images have enormous gravity and sweep, an almost godlike omniscience. His black, white, and silver hues are so rich that his images seem to have been marinated in crude oil.”

    — New York Times Holiday Gift Guide, New York
  • GENESIS honors its biblical antecedent… there could be no more powerful reminder of all that we stand to lose.”

    — The New York Times, New York
  • “…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…”

    — Force One, Monaco and French Riviera
  • “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.”

    — Art, Design and Communication in Higher Education, Glasgow
  • “These pictures are a religious experience. They celebrate the preciousness of life.”

    — Stern, Hamburg
  • “A genuine masterpiece from one of the greatest names in contemporary photography… For me it’s almost a biblical work—at once epic and fundamental—that attains the pinnacle of the art. His contribution to photography is what Beethoven’s Ninth is to music. It is a gift to humanity from a genius of image creation. It is perhaps the most amazing photography I have ever seen. A book for always.”

    — Quesabesde.com, Barcelona

“This amazing book is Salgado’s love letter to the planet. I love the planet too. Look at the icebergs, at the mountains, at the forests, at the rivers: they take your breath away. But I am an architect, and I love challenging all this immense and frightening beauty by building shelters for human beings.”
