Sebastião Salgado. GENESIS

Product Description

Imported from USA


“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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

“These pictures are a religious experience. They celebrate the preciousness of life.”

“…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…”
