The Un­touched Planet Earth

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

A pic­ture is worth a thou­sand words, but a pho­to­graph… a black-and-white pho­to­graph evokes more emo­tions than a mere pic­ture ever could. From vol­canic land­scapes to Arc­tic ice­bergs to me­an­der­ing rivers and canyons to prim­i­tive rain­forests, Brazil­ian pho­tog­ra­pher Se­bastião Sal­gado’s high- con­trast black-and-white photography cap­tures the last re­main­ing un­touched ves­tiges of our planet. Ge­n­e­sis, the new ex­hi­bi­tion of Sal­gado’s works at C/O Ber­lin (this page) from 18 April, serves as homage to planet Earth and calls upon all its in­hab­i­tants to pro­tect its di­ver­sity. on the Nile takes a closer look at Jews, Chris­tians, and Mus­lims in Egypt from an­tiq­uity to the Mid­dle Ages.
