Genesis is a quest for the world as it was, as it was formed, as it evolved, as it existed for millenia before modern life accelerated and began distancing us from the very essence of our being. It is a journey to the landscapes, seascapes, animals and peoples that have so far escaped the long reach of today's world.
245 outstanding B&W photos by awarded Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado are on display at Cordoaria Nacional, the former 18th century rope and sail factory in Lisbon.
If you are not familiared with Salgado's work, DO a search online and imagine seeing his photos, some king-sized, on the wall. It's overwhelming!
