Sebastião Salgado Genesis

Natural History Museum


11 April – 8 September 2013
Waterhouse Gallery

Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis is the culmination of 8 years work exploring 32 countries. It is Salgado’s 3rd long-term photographic exploration of global issues, following his previously acclaimed collections, Workers and Migrations.

About 216 of Sebastião Salgado’s black-and-white documentary photographs are on show in Genesis. They capture some of the furthest and wildest corners of our world, portraying indigenous communities that continue to live in accordance with their ancestral traditions, and showing rare insights into their lands.

During the 8 years in which Salgado travelled around the world to produce this collection of images, he often stayed with the people he photographed.

Salgado reflects: ‘Many of us live in cities, cut off completely from the planet. My wish was to experience living with people with real links to nature… For me to go back to nature was a huge pleasure. I wished to present the planet in my language, photography. And so came Genesis.’

The exhibition’s design follows the 5 themes in Genesis: Sanctuaries, Planet South, Africa, Northern Spaces, and Amazonia and Pantanal.

Many of the places represented in Salgado’s images are important research areas particularly for studying the variety of species biodiversity.

By way of support for a local Oxford gallery I bring you this notification of a photo competition. Although I do like to support any attempt to foster an interest in photography I think it is a huge mistake to allow work created before the announcement of the competition. I think they should only accept new work otherwise, as was seen at another recent exhibition, you get the same tired old photographers trotting out their same old tired photographs. Be bold make new work.

Rob Judges Exhibition – The Radcliffe Infirmary

Rob has been a friend of ours for many years and I am extremely jealous that he managed to get into the Radcliffe Infirmary after it had closed down and before rebuilding took place. I used all the contacts I had to do the same and still had no success, hats of to Rob, he is better connected. Here is a link to Rob’s site

Mike Green Exhibition Oxford

I went to the private view of Mike Green’s new exhibition at Art Jericho in Oxford. Mike has been associated with the Photographers Workshop for many years and is a very fine black and white photographer with an exquisite eye for the street photography influenced by the famous French photographers such as Henri Cartie-Bresson, (considered to be the father of modern photojournalism, and who helped develop the “street photography” or “real life reportage” style that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.)

Mike’s exhibition is a joy with many well seen and beautifully captured moments, and unusually today all shot on film and printed on traditional photographic silver gelatin papers. “This is a pixel free zone” said Mike when I questioned him, that is until his wife Christine moved into our eye line with a digi camera in hand, “oh well said Mike!”

If you are lucky enough to be in Oxford make the time to visit the gallery and see this exhibition
