For a very few days, actually just until Sunday August 16th, the exhibition Genesis by Sebastião Salgado is on show at C/O-Berlin in Amerika Haus.
Lower East visited the fantastic, stunning, thoughtful – and totally overwhelming photo exhibition.
From the C/O-Berlin webpage: Genesis is a visual homage to the blue planet. In opulent black-and-white photographs, the photographer Sebastião Salgado documents the stunning beauty and rich diversity of intact flora and fauna, as well as indigene peoples. His aesthetically impressive, large format photographic series is the result of an expedition lasting several years, with the goal of heightening people’s awareness for the preciousness of the last untouched corners of the earth. The Genesis project is Sebastião Salgado’s appeal to civilization to preserve part of the planet in all its original and fascinating diversity.
