“Sebastião Salgado: The silent drama of photography…”



I have found Sebastião Salgado’s photography absolutely stunning. A few years ago I had the opportunity to see an exhibit of his work at the Harn Museum in Gainesville, Fl. ‘Up close and personal’ his work was even more impressive. How he [or whoever did the printing] got the print quality out of those 35mm negatives is something I can’t figure out. I can truly say I have never seen anything like it. So, I think he is a photographer worth looking at and listening to!

  1. wow! wonderful story and photos. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I would love to see his pictures up close. I have a couple of his books that are wonderfully reproduced, but I’m sure they don’t compare with the prints.

    Christian, thank you for posting this. His work and his words are inspiring and I’m feeling rather glum about our environment and government at the moment.
