Sebastião Salgado Genesis

A very inspiring TED talk with Sebastião Salgado about the Genesis project, which is the culmination of  over 50.000 photos taken through the 8 years that this project took to complete. Spending as much as 8 to 10 straight months in each of the 32 countries that he visited for the project, Salgado shows us the planet untouched by progress, when the humankind and nature were still at an equilibrium. The simple beauty of the photos, shows a man who has a deep connection to the planet and to himself. For me it is a true ultimate evidence, that when you show your view of world through photography you are showing yourself as well.

I dedicate my award winning travel writing and photography to the soul and sense of place of the locations I visit, the people I meet and the food I taste.
