"Sebastiao Salgado 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."--the publisher
