Sebastião Salgado

“One of the world’s most celebrated documentary photographers” —New York Times

Traveling constantly across Africa, Latin America, and Asia, Sebastião Salgado has documented the human toll of violence and migration in visually stunning photographs of manual laborers, refugees, and sprawling metropolises. The 2001 documentary Salgado: The Spectre of Hope chronicled the creation of his series of photographs, published as Migrations: Humanity in Transition. In 1998 he established the Instituto Terra with his wife to restore biodiversity to the Atlantic Forest in Brazil, encourage sustainable development, and conduct research and environmental education. He has been honored with the Hasselblad Award, Photographer of the Year by the International Center for Photography, and an honorary doctorate from the New School.
