Genesis and Chaos
Salgado calls the project Genesis. "In the planet's beginnings," writes the magazine's Jennifer Hattam, "he believes he will find a key to its future."
You'll find more of Salgado's stunning images in the pages of Sierra, but only on the newsstand. You can, however, read Bill Mckibben's essay, "Year One," in which he designates Katrina as the genesis, if you will, of something very ominous: the new age of climate chaos.
