“Through these photographs, Genesis aspires to show and to share this beauty. It is a visual tribute to afragile planet that we all have a duty to protect.”

– Lélia Wanick Salgado, curator

Don’t miss the exceptional reopening of Genesis, the great exhibition by Sebastião Salgado, his own photographic tribute to our planet in its natural state.

From June 3rd, (re)discover at La Sucrière this exceptional exhibition of 245 black and white photographs: the result of an epic eight-year work and about thirty trips around the world. Through 5 geographic chapters, the exhibition becomes a journey to the landscapes, seascapes, animals and peoples that have so far escaped the long reach of today’s world.
