The Salt Of The Earth

I am so excited to see this film about the life and work of Sebastião Salgado.

Advise from Sebastião Salgado for young photographers. “If you’re young and have the time, go and study. Study anthropology, sociology, economy, geopolitics. Study so that you’re actually able to understand what you’re photographing. What you can photograph and what you should photograph.”
