    studied architecture and urban planning in Paris. Her interest in photography started in 1970. In the 1980s she began conceiving and designing photography books and exhibitions, many about Sebastião Salgado, including Genesis. has been the director of Amazonas images since 1994.

  • The book of Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis project is being published by Taschen in a variety of formats, including a two volume Collector’s Edition (that has 2,500 copies numbered and signed by Salgado), five Art Editions that are each limited to 100 copies and a standard hardback version. The book is arranged in five chapters geographically: Planet South, Sanctuaries, Africa, Northern Spaces and Amazonia and Pantanal.

    Sebastião Salgado only does ‘epic’. His projects span continents and take years to complete. They tackle big, interconnected themes such as work, migration, childhood, exploitation, disease, macroeconomics and war. The black and white images he creates – he doesn’t take colour pictures – have an almost biblical texture and seem to connect everything to everything else.

       
     

     

     
     
       

    These images testify to the right of all children to be, not victims but actors in an environment of protection and encouragement. The Global Movement for Children aims to create a world where every child's right to dignity, security and self-fulfilment is achieved.

    UNICEF Special Representative Sebastião Salgado has donated these photographs for a poster series in support of changing the world with children.
