Sebastiao Salgardo – The Silent Drama of Photography

Extract from TED website: “Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay. Here, he tells a deeply personal story of the craft that nearly killed him, and shows breathtaking images from his latest work, Genesis, which documents the world’s forgotten people and places.” I visited the Genesis exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London last year and soon became a fan of Salgardo. I have been researching his work for a photography project but his work is also perfect for my MA dissertation.
