Finding Eden: The photography of Sebastiao Salgado

September 23rd, 2014
12:26 PM ET

In a world where the Damocles Sword of climate change hangs precariously above our heads, Sebastiao Salgado has made it his goal to galvanize people to protect the planet through his photographs of pristine areas untouched by modern civilization.

The photographer explained to Christiane Amanpour at the New York exhibition of his work, that the project was "a kind of a state of a union of the planet. It's the cross-section of what we must have reserved. If you want to survive, as a species, we must protect what these pictures represent and we must rebuild part what we destroy if we want to survive, as a species."

But the land is not as sacred for some as it is for Sebastiao Salgado. Telling the program of a time he was attacked by a hostile subject created by a hostile environment.

"For the first time in Zambia we were attacked by an elephant. An elephant attacked our car."

"These guys that killed the elephants inside of the national parks, they come by car. And elephants now know that when they see a car, they are in danger. And they attack."

It's an exhibition that has crossed the world, and Sebastiao Salgado's estimates about two million people have seen it. So what could they take away from it?

"Everything around us is alive, very alive. All of these mountains, all of these rivers, all of these trees, they are as alive as we are. We are an animal. We are part of the animal species. We are part of all this. We are nature."

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
