SEBASTIAO SALGADO

“If you take a picture of a human that does not make him noble, there is no reason to take this picture. That is my way of seeing things.”

Sebastião Salgado nació un 8 de febrero de 1944 en Aimorés, en el estado de Minas Gerais, Brasil. Actualmente vive en París. Salgado cursa estudios en economía, comenzando su carrera como fotógrafo profesional en París en 1973 en las agencias de fotografía Sygma, Gamma y Magnum Photos hasta 1994, momento en el cual él y Lélia Wanick Salgado fundan Amazonas images, un agencia creada exclusivamente para su trabajo.

Ha viajado a más de 100 países para realizar sus proyectos fotográficos. La mayor parte de éstos, además de aparecer en numerosas publicaciones de prensa, han sido presentados en libros como Other Americas (1986), Sahel: l’homme en détresse (1986), Sahel: el fin del camino (1988), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations and Portraits (2000), y Africa (2007). Exposiciones itinerantes de sus trabajos han sido, y continúan siendo, presentadas alrededor del mundo.

Sebastião Salgado ha sido galardonado con numerosos grandes premios de fotografía en reconocimiento a sus logros. Es embajador de buena voluntad de UNICEF, y miembro honorario de la Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias en los Estados Unidos.

En 2004, Sebastião Salgado comienza un proyecto denominado Génesis, consistente en una serie de fotografías de paisajes, fauna y flora, así como de las comunidades humanas que continúan viviendo acorde a sus ancestrales tradiciones y culturas. Este trabajo es concebido como una búsqueda de la naturaleza todavía en su estado original.

Lélia y Sebastião han trabajado juntos desde los 90 en la restauración de una pequeña parte del Bosque Atlántico de Brasil. En 1998 consiguieron convertir esta tierra en una reserva natural y crear el Instituto Terra. El Instituto está dedicado a la reforestación, la conservación y la educación medioambiental.

Sebastião Salgado was born on February 8th, 1944 in Aimorés, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. He lives in Paris. Having studied economics, Salgado began his career as a professional photographer in 1973 in Paris, working with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos until 1994, when he and Lélia Wanick Salgado formed Amazonas images, an agency created exclusively for his work.

He has travelled in over 100 countries for his photographic projects. Most of these, besides appearing in numerous press publications, have also been presented in books such as Other Americas (1986), Sahel: l’homme en détresse (1986), Sahel: el fin del camino (1988), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations and Portraits (2000), and Africa (2007). Touring exhibitions of this work have been, and continue to be, presented throughout the world.

Sebastião Salgado has been awarded numerous major photographic prizes in recognition of his accomplishments. He is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and an honorary member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences in the United States.

In 2004, Sebastião Salgado began a project named Genesis, aiming at the presentation of the unblemished faces of nature and humanity. It consists of a series of photographs of landscapes and wildlife, as well as of human communities that continue to live in accordance with their ancestral traditions and cultures. This body of work is conceived as a potential path to humanity’s rediscovery of itself in nature.

Together, Lélia and Sebastião have worked since the 1990’s on the restoration of a small part of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil. In 1998 they succeeded in turning this land into a nature reserve and created the Instituto Terra. The Instituto is dedicated to a mission of reforestation, conservation and environmental education.
