Print

This artwork is signed, inscribed and numbered by the artist on the reverse. The work is a silver gelatin print and comes direct from the artist's studio.

Framing

For this picture, we recommend the 'BOX', a classic frame that is slimmer from the front and deeper from the side, turning your print into an elegant object on the wall. It is widely accepted as the finest way to frame photography, giving visual priority to the image and yet fitting stylishly into most interiors. Other options are of course available. All our frames are handmade by one of the UK's leading framing workshops, and are constructed to museum standards. Please note that prices do not include local taxes, framing or shipping.

Shipping

We aim to ship works that are unframed within 4 weeks and within 10 weeks for works that are framed, although sometimes we will beat that! All works are shipped from the UK. Please note that prices listed above do not include framing or shipping.

Artwork In Detail

Completed in 2013, Sebastião Salgado’s project, Genesis, is about returning to origins – finding nature in its pure, pristine state. As Salgado has said, Genesis is a “mosaic presented by nature itself”, but it is not just a romantic contemplation of the sublime, instead, it opens up a discussion about what we have done to the planet and what we must now do to protect it.
