  1. 1. Sebastiao Salgado A presentation by Vicki Bullock and Georgia Birk
  2. 2. Themes <ul><li>A theme constantly occurring in Salgado’s photography is poverty. </li></ul><ul><li>A large portion of his work involves people; specifically those living in developing countries who are deprived and impoverished in some way or another. </li></ul><ul><li>The subjects of his photographs range from peasants, refugees, orphans and migrants. </li></ul><ul><li>During his career in photojournalism he has travelled to numerous countries across the globe, including Africa, Brazil, Afghanistan, Ecuador, India, Croatia and Sudan, as well as many others. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Themes <ul><li>A theme constantly occurring in Salgado’s photography is poverty. </li></ul><ul><li>A large portion of his work involves people; specifically those living in developing countries who are deprived and impoverished in some way or another. </li></ul><ul><li>The subjects of his photographs range from peasants, refugees, orphans and migrants. </li></ul><ul><li>During his career in photojournalism he has travelled to numerous countries across the globe, including Africa, Brazil, Afghanistan, Ecuador, India, Croatia and Sudan, as well as many others. </li></ul>“ What I want is the world to remember the problems and people I photograph. What I want is to create a discussion about what is happening around the world and to provoke some debate with these pictures. Nothing more than this. I don’t want people to look at them and appreciate the light and the palate of tones. I want them to look inside and see what the pictures represent, and the kind of people I photograph” - Sebastiao Salgado NOTE: Quote is excerpt from an interview with Sabastiao Salgado by Ken Lassiter, Photographer’s Forum.
  4. 4. Influences <ul><li>His first major project in 1993 was entitled Workers, documented manual labor, at merely a survival level. </li></ul><ul><li>At times he is influenced by his connection to his photography. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, Salgado can identify with the migrants photographed in his series Migrations: Humanity in Transition because he too was a migrant. </li></ul><ul><li>However, other influences, such as other photographers, are not greatly present in his work. </li></ul><ul><li>This is because Salgado does not greatly focus on photographic techniques and achieving visual appeal, but instead focuses on creating a story through his images; </li></ul>“ I always work for a group of pictures, to tell a story. If you ask which picture in a story I like most, it is impossible for me to tell you this. I don’t work for an individual picture. If I must select one individual picture for a client, it is very difficult for me.” - Sebastiao Salgado
  5. 5. Influences <ul><li>The photography process for Salgado is a personal experience; </li></ul><ul><li>“ My photography is my way of life. I photograph from my experience, my way of seeing things, and it is very difficult to tell you whether I photograph in one style or another” - Sebastiao Salgado </li></ul>NOTE: Quotes are excerpts from an interview with Sabastiao Salgado by Ken Lassiter, Photographer’s Forum.
