Sebasti?o Salgado

Salgado is a photojournalist who seeks out the most moving, unsettling, perspective-shifting images of life on Earth. From his mind-swarming images of the Serra Pelada gold mine to his most recent epic labour?Genesis, which documents the last pockets of undamaged nature and unmodernised peoples on Earth, Salgado shows secrets from remote places: things you thought were lost, crimes you never imagined.

Salgado is not just a great photographer. He may well be the last great photographer ? at least in the classic, humane tradition, working in black and white, telling profound truths. You can leaf through any of Salgado?s books and every few pages be pulled up by a shot that seems like one of the best photographs ever taken.
