‘Sebastiao Salgado never does things by half and his latest project, Genesis, which has its world premiere at the Natural History Museum in London this week, is photography on an epic scale. It comprises more than 200 prints selected from eight years’ work, shot in 32 countries.
The project’s title, Genesis, is about Salgado attempting to capture the planet as it once was, unspoilt landscapes, wildlife and remote communities that live as their ancestors did.’
This is a must for me to visit….all under one roof too!
Meet the colourful and delicate creatures living in the Butterfly at Natural History Museum this summer, with a butterfly exhibition full of exotic creatures, as well as plenty of child friendly activities that will keep your little ones entertained all day.
