    “ 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.
  • Influences
    • His first major project in 1993 was entitled Workers, documented manual labor, at merely a survival level.
    • At times he is influenced by his connection to his photography.
    • For example, Salgado can identify with the migrants photographed in his series Migrations: Humanity in Transition because he too was a migrant.
    • However, other influences, such as other photographers, are not greatly present in his work.
    • 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;
    “ 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
  • Influences
    • The photography process for Salgado is a personal experience;
    • “ 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
