This collection of photographs by photographer Sebastiao Salgado represents two decades of work.
His images come from Andean villages, mining shanty-towns in the Brazilian jungle, and refugee camps in famine-stricken Ethiopia, Chad, and Mali. "Salgado's photographs honor the human spirit with a reverent dignity that approaches allegorical vision. It is not simple social documentary, but his recreation of the spirit of a people struggling against difficult odds while maintaining a dignity and sense of self that define the very roots of human existence."--the publisher. An introduction by noted critic and author Eduardo Galeano accompanies the images.
