I went to a photo exhibition. Not just any photo exhibition, but the worldwide premiere of Sebastiao Salgado’s latest work: Genesis. If it comes your way, i strongly advise not to miss it; it is a real eye-opener.
The show was held in the exhibition hall of Rome’s Ara Pacis Augustae, a modern monument sheathing an ancient one which i have previously ragged on in this column. Read all about that here.
If truth be told, the spaces were exceptional, as was the cleanliness and the illumination. Above all, the photography is sublime. Many, many prints impeccably printed nice and large. All in all, an exceptionally organized event – congratulations to all those involved in bringing this spectacular show to life.
Last but not least, the master himself was present, smiling, answering questions, autographing books, shaking hands. Sebastiao Salgado, you are the man!
Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour.
