Last Chance to See Sebastiao Salgado's Genesis

14th August 2013

Sebastiao Salgado's acclaimed Genesis is due to close on September 8th, giving nature lovers checking into luxury London hotels just a few short weeks to see one of the most critically acclaimed exhibitions to be held in London for years.

The culmination of eight years' work, the exhibition documents the lives of indigenous communities from 32 different countries right around the world.

In particular, the Brazilian photographer attempts to show how, despite modern pressures, many communities are still managing to hold onto their ancestral traditions and stay in touch with nature.

As Salgado himself has explained, his wish was to "experience living with people with real links to nature" and "to present the planet in my language, photography".

Since it opened at the Natural History Museum in the west of London, the exhibition has given thousands of tourists and locals the chance to see images from some of the most biodiverse parts of the planet, including the Amazon, the African plains and the far north of Europe and the Americas.

Notably, just as with his previous exhibitions, Workers and Migrations, Genesis has helped cement Salgado's reputation as one of the world's greatest living photographers, with the Brazilian having won many prizes for his work, including the prestigious Gold Medal Award for Photography from New York's National Arts Club.

Tickets for the exhibition cost £10 for adults and £5 for children and other concessions, though members of the Natural History Museum can enjoy Genesis for free.

Aside from this temporary exhibition, the museum is home to some of the world's finest scientific collections, making it a true highlight for many tourists staying in luxury London hotels.

Culture-lovers visiting the museum are also able to take in the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as the Science Museum, both of which are a stone's throw from the Natural History Museum and also allow visitors to enjoy their permanent collections for free.
