How often do you go out with the intention of finding the good, the marvellous, the wonderful? That’s what Sebastião Salgado did over a period of nine years. Starting out in 2004, he’s travelled and photographed unspoiled terrain in 32 countries to restore in himself a lost trust in everything.
The results of those travels, the “Genesis” exhibition, will be coming to the ROM this spring and I’ve been honoured to be selected as a special guest to take part in a curated conversation around the show on the subject of “awe” later in May. It’s going to be an awesome May this year. Awe, and then some!
