Photographs by Sebastião Salgado. Pantheon Books, New York, 1986. First American Edition.
Salgado, at the time a Magnum photographer, spent seven years photographing and living with the peoples of Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico. His portrait of the daily life there shows us both the cultures and their politics. It is, according to the publisher, "the visual equivalent to the magic of a Gabriel García Márquez tale." One of the most powerful visions of life in Central and South America ever recorded by a photographer.
Very Fine in flexi-binding. A beautiful, crisp copy of this hard-to-find book. Pages are fresh throughout. Small, inconsequential 2" line crease along the bottom of the front cover, along with a few other tiny impressions. Very slight bump to top right corner of covers, ever-so-slightly starting to affect first few pages. Publisher's red remainder mark is evident close to the spine.
