Photography // Monday, March 24, 2014
In "Genesis," photojournalist and social documentarian Sebastião Salgado declares, "my camera allowed nature to speak to me. And it was my privilege to listen".

Like a virus, the pictorial texture propagates itself and its digitalization becomes an eminently contemporary process.
