Product Description

About the Author

Sebastiao Salgado was born in Aimores, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. A former economist, Salgado began his career in Paris as a professional photographer in 1973 and subsequently worked with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos. In 1994, Lelia Wanick Salgado and Sebastiao Salgado created Amazonas images, an agency that handles exclusively his work. Salgado travels throughout the world for his photographic projects which have been featured in numerous international periodicals as well as books, including Other Americas (1986), Sahel: l'homme en detresse (1986), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations (2000), and The Children (2000). Exhibitions of these bodies of work tour internationally. Salgado has been awarded numerous major photographic prizes in recognition of his accomplishments and is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Together Lelia and Sebastiao have been working since 1991 on the restoration of a small part of the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest, in the Rio Doce Valley, where they created Instituto Terra, a natural reserve and environmental educational center. Salgado's current photographic project is Genesis, a series of black-and-white photographs of landscapes, wildlife, and human communities around the globe that represents a search for nature in its original state. Mia Couto has published 20 books including novels, short-stories and poetry. Translated in more than 20 countries Mia Couto is the best known and awarded author from Mozambique. His first novel, Sleepwalking Land, was classified by an International jury, as one of 12 best African books published in the 20th century. Mia Couto has received national and international awards and has been short listed for the Caine International Prize (2001), the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize (2005) and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award (2006). Mia Couto lives in Maputo (Mozambique) and works as an ecologist.

Really a beautiful book, excellent reproduction - a very high quality book but don't expect only stunning images of nature and tribes, there are also very moving pictures of real African anquish and hardship - such honesty and emotion you just think how was he there to capture that moment. Highly recommend it.

I've never written a review before but as you can't look inside this photography book I would like to share my personal opinion about this book, as it took me ages to decide what book to buy from amazon so maybe I can help. It is an amazing photography book. He captures Africa in all its glory and all its hardships a humbling experience looking through it, a must if your interested in Africa/photos. Its a heavy book full of beautiful black and white pictures with short paragraphs explanation this guy is my inspiration, because aside from his exceptional work, a glimpse at this book shows how hard some people have it and how we all need to do our bit to help eachother and be consious all the time.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book as a result of between 35 and 40 trips to Africa. I feel lucky to find most of the best photos of Salgado in a book. It is very surprising to see the same point of view and photographic approach on the photos taken both in 1973 and in 2005.
This is not only a photo album but also a guide for the photographers willing to learn how to see in black-and-white and perform a photo reportage. Highly recommended!
