Sebastião Salgado, Genesis

I have been to a fantastic exhibition two weekends ago, and couldn’t share it here due to a long/never ending extremely busy week!

Sebastião Salgado, Genesis exhibition

Sebastião Salgado, Genesis exhibition

Sebastião Salgado, Genesis. Since he is a Brazilian artist, Linguarte, the school for Brazilian culture in Munich, decided to take the kids there and I joined them as parent and (well …) “photographer” 🙂

The exhibition is outstanding, to say the least. Really amazing. If you ever have the chance to see it, don’t miss it, and if not, probably I would suggest you to get the book.

The main topic is life, as a whole.

We had a bit of Salgado’s history, before heading to the exhibition, with some videos for the kids and a small biography. Salgado was an up and coming economist, back in the 70’s, and gave up his promising career to follow his passion for photography, and it paid of!!

His TED talk – Sebastião Salgado is also something worth watching!
