Now the Brazilian photographer Sebastian Salgado is one of the most famous documentalists in the world. But in 1970, he still worked as an economist and, perhaps, would be now, if the wife did not give him somehow on the occasion of the camera.
Since then, the big way has passed. Salgado visited more than 100 countries around the world. Everywhere his main characters became animals, plants and a person living in harmony with nature. More than half a century, Salgado explores our planet, believing that we all became hostages of economic progress. A separate project was devoted to his native Brazil.
Special place in the work of Salgado occupies a lifestyle and traditions of residents not touched by civilization of regions. Photo above Made in Papua – New Guinea.
