Sebastião Salgado "GENESIS" Signed, Limited Edition SUMO Book, with stand

About the Item

Collector's Edition Book measures: 18.4 x 27.6 in. Total weight: 130 lb. The Collector’s Edition is limited to 2,500 copies (No. 501-3,000), numbered and signed by Sebastião Salgado and includes a custom book stand made of cheerywood designed by Tadao Ando. The two volumes come carefully packaged along with the stand in a robust custom-made wooden crate to preserve and protect them. Also available in five Art editions each limited to 100 copies. The Collector's Edition comes with a book stand designed by Tadao Ando. The GENESIS book stand was conceived by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the only living person to have won architecture’s four most prestigious prizes. Ando’s simple and innovative design consists of two “twin” pieces of wood, bound together with leather, into which a third piece of wood can be slotted to form a sturdy, elegant display. The book stand is handmade in Spain. The two volumes come carefully packaged along with the stand in a robust custom-made wooden crate to preserve and protect them. Attention: total weight is 59 kg (130 lb)! The paper is a traditional coated art paper from the German paper mill Scheufelen - this quality is no longer available on the market and was produced especially for Taschen. The black/white pictures has been reproduced in a special four color separation process with two blacks and two shades of grey. The black densities we achieve in the pictures are photographic print densities that in normal printing cannot be achieved. The printing and the binding of the book have been done in Italy at manufacturers specialized in this field with traditional craftsmanship that is unique worldwide in this field. Salgado’s masterpiece: GENESIS-Earth eternal A photographic homage to our planet in its natural state Of the myriad works Sebastião Salgado has produced in his acclaimed photography career, three long-term projects stand out: Workers (1993), documenting the vanishing way of life of manual laborers across the world; Migrations (2000), a tribute to mass migration driven by hunger, natural disasters, environmental degradation, or demographic pressure; and this new opus, GENESIS, the result of an epic eight-year expedition to rediscover the mountains, deserts and oceans, the animals and peoples that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society – the land and life of a still pristine planet. On over 30 trips-traveled on foot, by light aircraft, seagoing vessels, canoes, and even balloons, through extreme heat and cold and in sometimes dangerous conditions – Salgado created a collection of images showing us nature, animals, and indigenous peoples in such shocking and intense beauty it takes our breath away. In GENESIS, one discovers the animal species and volcanoes of the Galápagos; the penguins, sea lions, cormorants, and whales of the South Atlantic; Brazilian alligators and jaguars; and African lions, leopards, and elephants. Through Salgado’s lens, we travel over icebergs in the Antarctic, the volcanoes of Central Africa, the ravines of the Grand Canyon, and the glaciers of Alaska. We encounter the Stone Age Korowai people of West Papua, nomadic Dinka cattle farmers in Sudan, Nenets and their reindeer herds in the Arctic Circle, as well as the Mentawai jungle communities on islands west of Sumatra. This Collector’s Edition, designed and edited by Lélia Wanick Salgado, features exquisitely reproduced large-format images arranged not by theme or region but rather conceived as a portfolio that takes beholders on a journey around the globe, immersing them in Salgado’s vision of the Earth’s mesmerizing scale, order, and beauty. Shipping is free of charge within the U.S. A flat rate of $100 will be charged for shipping to customers outside of the U.S.
