For forty years, legendary Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado has documented human history in a period of dramatic changes, bearing witness to military conflicts, genocide, famine, and forced migration. In his new project, “Genesis,” he departs from social photography for the first time; instead, he illustrates Earth's beauty. We approach Salgado from two perspectives: that of his son Juliano, and that of Wim Wenders, the film's co-director, who is a photographer as well.
