DESCRIPTION


This exhibition features the work of Sebastião Salgado, considered the most highly recognized photojournalist in the world. Trained as an economist, Salgado focuses on people who are politically, economically and culturally excluded from the promise of global development. In this exhibition, Salgado documents famine in Africa and manual labor around the world. Formerly a part of the Magnum Photo group, Salgado's beautiful photographs have often been at the center of debates regarding the role of aesthetics, ethics and the documentary form.
