The perfect primer on Sebastião Salgado, the renowned Brazilian social documentary photographer and photojournalist

Overview

His images of the Sahel famine and his colossal project Workers would be enough to make his reputation and justify all the awards he has received. But there is more. A native of Brazil, trained as an economist, Sebastião Salgado has shown a constant faith in mankind, a solidarity that never waivers or flinches in the face of pain, an ability to analyse extreme situations, a fierce drive to affirm what he truly is, a humanist photographer.

The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an affordable pocket format. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series has been awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.
