World renowned photojournalist Sebastião Salgado in a rare appearance comes to the ROM to discuss GENESIS, a photographic essay eight years in the making.

Genesis is about our planet earth, nature and its beauty, and what remains of it today despite the manifold destruction caused by human activity. It is an attempt to portray the beauty and the majesty of regions that are still in a pristine condition, areas where landscapes and wildlife are still unspoiled, places where human communities continue to live according to their ancient culture and traditions.

Genesis is about seeing and marveling, about understanding the necessity for the protection of all this; and finally it is about inspiring action for this preservation.

This will be the first in a series of events and programs presented by ROM Contemporary Culture that explore the issues surrounding conservation and climate change and ask:

How does the landscape change a culture?

How does a culture change the landscape?

Speaker Bio: Sebastião Salgado was born on 8 February 1944 in Aimorés, Minas Gerais, Brazil. He lives in Paris, France.

Salgado has travelled to over 100 countries for his photographic projects and been widely published.

Salgado has been awarded numerous major photographic prizes in recognition of his accomplishments. He is also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and an honorary member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences in the United States.
