Photographs by Sebastião Salgado
A major exhibition of work by internationally acclaimed Brazilian photographer, Sebastião Salgado, featured work from his renowned Migrations and Children series.
Between 1993 and 1999, Salgado travelled to over 40 countries in Asia, Africa, Central Europe and Latin America, chronicling the human cost behind political events and documenting the destruction of once stable communities driven out by war, repression and poverty.
Poignant and compelling Salgado’s compassionate and questioning photographs give a hint of the harrowing experiences endured by millions of people.
Exhibition organised, designed and curated by Lélia Wanick Salgado with Amazonas Images.
Aperture, a non-for-profit organisation devoted to photography and the visual arts, organised this travelling exhibition and produced the accompanying publication.
Major support provided by Kodak Professional, a division of Eastman Kodak Company and by Leica Camera.
