The Nomadic Nenets are a tribe of people unknown to me. That was until Sebastiao Salgado chose to feature them as part of his ‘Genesis’ project. For the best 8 years Salgado has been scouring the world for people and places untouched by modern life. The project brought him to the arctic wastes of Northern Siberia where he took these moody evocative pictures of the Nenets.
The work bears all the hallmarks of Salgado’s poetic and humanist eye and are a great addition to this photographers cannon.
