"In 2004, Sebastião Salgado began work on genesis: series of photographs of landscapes, animals, plants and human communities still living according to ancestral tradition and culture. This work is designed as a quest for nature in its original state. It is presented in two books published by Taschen, and a travelling exhibition starting in the spring of 2013. Since 1990, Sebastião and lélia have been working to reclaim the environment of a small part of the atlantic Forest in Brazil by giving a plot of land they owned back to nature. In 1998 they made the area into a natural reserve and created the Instituto Terra, whose aims are reforestation and environmental education." (© 2013 Slash)
