Docteur en économie, Sebastião Salgado ne s'est lancé dans la photographie qu'après ses 30 ans mais la discipline devint une obsession. Ses projets qui s'étendent sur plusieurs années capturent superbement le côté humain d'une histoire mondiale qui, trop souvent, inclut la mort, la destruction ou la décadence. Ici, il nous raconte une histoire très personnelle sur son art qui l'a presque tué et nous montre des photos à couper le souffle de son dernier projet, Genèse, qui rend compte de personnes et de lieux oubliés du monde.

Sebastião Salgado captures the dignity of the dispossessed through large-scale, long-term projects. Full bio
