There′s no denying that we′re living in an era full of advanced technologies. That said... some could claim that it′s more important to stop and smell the roses quite literally, and appreciate nature. Our Yim Yoonhee helps us do that. Take a look. The wonders of nature,... the hidden jewels of the world,... they′re becoming all too distant, almost a thing of the past. Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado has realized this alarming degradation of our planet and our ecosystems,... and for the past 40 years, he′s trekked the natural world, capturing images of the beauty that he hopes to preserve. Known for his huge photodocumentary projects, Salgado′s most recent opus titled "Genesis" takes the audience to a world that′s been here since the beginning. [KOREAN] "This masterpiece is the work of over 8 years, and over 30 trips,... the bulk of which was spent seeking animals, even by hot air balloon." From animals,... to the every day lives of indigenous people, Salgado traveled to the far corners of different continents, compiling what he calls his "love letter to the planet." And sticking to his favored black and white style, he produces powerful images of a world untouched by modern times. At the end of the day, Salgado believes his images will spread awareness of issues of the environment and climate change,... things that are endangering the sheer existence of the breathtaking wonders he captures in each frame.
