    About The Work

    In Fortress of Solitude Sebastião Salgado captures the sheer magnificence of the natural world on his voyage to Antarctica. Traveling for days to find this unique iceberg, Salgado considers the work to be his first true photograph of the journey and parallels its structure to that of a medieval castle. As with all of the artist's works, the photograph is shot with black-and-white film and resonates with Salgado's adherence to simplicity.

    The work is from the series Genesis, a project sponsored by the United Nations, the United Nations Environmental Project, UNESCO, and the Guardian News. Started in 2004, Genesis is Salgado's eight-year mission to document environments and communities around the world in their pure, unindustrialized state.
