Having seen deforestation in his native Brazil, acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado went to five corners of the earth in pursuit of a portrait of the natural world.

The results can be seen in his stunning series of black and white photographs currently showing in an exhibition at the Natural History Museum, as well as in this beautiful monograph from the pioneering art publishing house TASCHEN.

Sebastião Salgado, Genesis is a sumptuous, 520-page hardcover with 17 fold outs arranged across five chapters geographically: Planet South, Sanctuaries, Africa, Northern Spaces, Amazonia and Pantanal.

We have a copy of this beautiful tome (rrp £44.99) to give away. To be in with a chance of winning it answer this simple question:
