|Photograph from Genesis by Sebastião Salgado
Mr. Salgado has published many books of photography, starting with Other Americas in 1986, which featured pictures he took of rural peasants in Latin America. Next he worked with Doctors Without Borders to document famine in Africa in two books: Sahel: Man in Distress and Sahel: The End of the Road. His next book, Workers, published in 1993, showed the workers of large-scale industrial and agricultural operations. He began work on Migrations around this time to document people migrating en masse due to industrialization. Migrations was published in 2000. In 2004 he began working on Genesis, showing the undeveloped natural world in the most remote regions of the planet. Genesis was published in 2013.
