LONDON.- Phillips announces a selling exhibition of works by renowned Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado. This new exhibition entitled Sebastião Salgado: Photographs is presented in two parts; Genesis, a brand new portfolio of platinum prints consisting of 50 seminal pieces from his epic photo essay and a selection of silver gelatin prints, Images from the 20th Century, consisting of some of his most recognised and significant works.

Genesis depicts scenes from the most far-flung places on earth. For a decade, Salgado, one of today’s most esteemed photographers has created his monumental exploration, reaching parts of the planet which still remain pristine, untouched and unaffected by modern civilisation. This body of work celebrates through Salgado’s lens, a raw beauty of the earth and is his visual call to arms to protect it.

Working closely with Studio 31, the world’s foremost advocate of platinum printing, responsible for its revival in the late 1980’s, Salgado has produced a collection of wonderfully subtle prints of exquisite tonality, and breathtaking beauty. This is the first showing of this portfolio, limited to a total of 16 sets and 3 artist proofs.

Images of the 20th Century, in contrast, are silver gelatin prints. Selected works from the Serra Pelada Goldmine, the oil fires of Kuwait and Salgado’s haunting images of Africa in the early 1980’s will be exhibited, some in an exclusive larger format, seen for the first time. There will also be prints from his early work in South America, published as The Other America’s and from his work on Migrations.

The exhibition is curated and designed by Lelia Wanick Salgado.

“This is the inaugural exhibition launch of these sublime platinum prints and possibly the only chance to see them publicly. We are extremely delighted to host the viewing of this extraordinary portfolio of work from one of the most important living photographers.” Lou Proud, Head of Photographs, London

Sebastião Salgado was born in Brazil in 1944. After working as an economist he came to photography aged 29. Working initially as a photo-journalist, in the mid 1980’s he became known as one of the world’s leading photographers. In the last twenty five years he has devoted himself to producing three epic photographic essays: Workers published 1993 which examined the end of manual labour, Migrations, published 2000, which documented the global movements of people and growth in population and finally Genesis, published 2013, and exhibited this year in London’s Natural History Museum, in Toronto, Rome, Rio De Janeiro, Paris, Lausanne and Sao Paulo.
