This Oscar-nominated documentary tells the remarkable story of world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado. Over the past 40 years, Salgado has been traveling the world documenting our natural world as well as historically significant moments and events. Often in the most remote regions on the planet, or in the most tumultuous areas of conflict and hardship, his lens provides us with unmatched exposure to beauty, nature, hardship and the human condition. This often hard-hitting and unflinching documentary will undoubtedly leave its mark on viewers. Learn more about his remarkable life and his dedication to making the world a better place.
We also have a beautiful book of Salgado’s photography, featuring his project Genesis, in the Library collection.
