It has been almost 3 years now since Sebastião Salgado launched a project called Genesis. In it, the famous photographer wanted to go to all sorts of remote corners of the planet, and give us a glimpse of what life used to be before mankind took over and started changing nature.

In that journey, he has so far taken astonishing pictures of Antarctica, Patagonia, Galápagos, Xingu, Namibia, Sudan, Rwanda, and, latest, Kamchatka peninsula in Russia. A selection of some of these pictures can be found at the Guardian.

All of the trademark black-and-white stills are jaw-dropping. Like these penguins gathering on an iceberg in Antarctica.
