The Sand Sea in Namibia, 2005. Famous for putting a human face on economic and political oppression in developing countries, Mr. Salgado is photographing the most pristine vestiges of nature he can find: pockets of the planet unspoiled by modern development, Jori Finkel writes.

A cattle camp in southern Sudan in 2006. “Genesis” is his globally minded, photo-driven counterpart to the Instituto Terra in in southeastern Brazil, founded by Mr. Salgado and his wife, which was created to undertake an ambitious reforestation project. As Ian Parker wrote, Mr. Salgado is more than a photojournalist, “much the way Bono is something more than a pop star.” Photo: Sebastiao Salgado/Amazonas Images/Contact Press Images, courtesy of the Peter Fetterman Gallery [New York Times]

Boys fleeing from Southern Sudan to avoid being forced to fight in the civil war, and heading for the refugee camps of Northern Kenya in 1993. “Genesis” is not so much a departure from his previous work than it might at first seem. He still works in black and white, and his work still culminates in photo essays that reveal something about an entire species. His fundamental subject is social systems, and now ecosystems, Jori Finkel writes.
