Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado has documented some of the most horrific and catastrophic events on our planet — famine, disease, deprivation, war and genocide — as well as the stunning endurance, courage and nobility of those who face it. Scarred by his experiences, he returned to his family’s drought-ridden farm and managed to reinvigorate it through a system of experimental replanting. The success of this endeavour inspired his new photographic project “Genesis,” which seeks to capture the beauty and grandiosity of those landscapes still unspoiled by human intervention. This stunning documentary, nominated for an Academy Award and co-directed by acclaimed filmmaker Wim Wenders (Pina) and Salgado’s son Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, takes us on a breathtaking visual odyssey as we see the world through the eyes of one of the greatest image-makers of the last century — its pain and tragedy as well as its beauty and hope.
