Tour the world’s wildernesses and meet indigenous peoples, from the animals and volcanoes of the Galápagos to the Antarctic whales, Brazilian alligators and jaguars, African cats and elephants and isolated tribes of the Amazon jungle.

This incredible portfolio was amassed through more than 32 trips over 8 years. In it, Salgado has created a collection of images showing us nature, animals, and indigenous peoples in breathtaking resplendence.

Using solely black-and-white photography, the photographer rediscovers mountains, deserts, oceans, animals and peoples that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society to capture the land and life of a still pristine planet.

An ideal gift for lovers of photography and nature.
