Sebastião Salgado: Genesis, Art Edition C

US$10,000per set

About

Salgado’s masterpiece: Genesis, earth eternal. A photographic homage to our planet in its natural state. Two volumes bound in full leather, limited to five editions of 100 numbered and signed sets. Every set comes with a gelatin silver print, signed by Sebastião Salgado and printed under his personal supervision. “My love letter to the planet.” Sebastião Salgado. Art Edition C-No. 201-300. Black-browed albatrosses, Falkland Islands, 2009. Gelatin silver print. 24,5 x 33,5 cm / 10 x 13 in. (image), 30 x 40 cm / 12 x 16 in. (sheet) (Frame not included). The Art 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. Fine print: Genesis is printed on a traditional coated 250 gsm art paper from the German paper mill Scheufelen that is no longer available on the market and was produced specially for Taschen. The black and white pictures are reproduced in a four-color separation process, with two blacks and two shades of grey; the density of the blacks achieved rivals that of the finest silver gelatin prints. GENESIS was printed and bound in an Italian workshop utilizing traditional craftsmanship techniques that are unique worldwide in this field, using Italian Cialinen fabric for the cover. The Ando book Stand was hand made in Spain, and the leather originates from Britain. Precious cargo: 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)! Art Edition limited to 100 numbered and signed sets. Two volumes bound in full leather. Every set includes a book Stand in cheerywood veneer designed by Tadao Ando. Also included is a cloth-bound caption book. Every set comes with a gelatin silver print, signed by Sebastião Salgado and printed under his personal supervision. Delivered in a wooden cargo box (total weight: 59 kg [130 lb]). The photographer: Sebastião Salgado began his career as a professional photographer in Paris in 1973 and subsequently worked with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma and Magnum Photos. In 1994 he and his wife Le´lia created Amazonas images, which exclusively handles his work. Salgado’s photographic projects have been featured in many exhibitions as well as books, including Other Americas (1986), Sahel, L'Homme en de´tresse (1986), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations (2000), The Children (2000) and Africa (2007).
