In 1984, Salgado released Sahel: L'Homme en Detresse through a French publisher. It was his first book and was quickly followed by the ICP Photojournalist of the Year award in 1988. His work in the famine and drought-stricken region of sub-Saharan Sahel set a template for nearly all of his subsequent projects-there is a tender righteousness to the work that both instills shame at current conditions and engenders courage to act for change. These words from the foreword read like a lifelong axiom: "The world is in peril, both nature and Humanity...Our very existence is in danger. This is tragically mirrored in the current state of humanity." Salgado's
camerawork shows us glimpses of that mirror.
