Description

Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado’s body of work represents something of an aesthetic paradox. His pictures have documented many of the crises of the modern world—gold mines in his home country, blazing oil fires in the Gulf War, the terrors of the Rwandan genocide. Yet in spite of their often harrowing subjects, Salgado’s compositions are also beautiful objects of art. Director Wim Wenders collaborates with Salgado’s son Juliano Ribeiro Salgado in this globe-trotting visual odyssey about an artist and photojournalist who spent forty years as a front-line witness to history in the making around the world. Nominated for the Best Documentary Feature Oscar, this exquisitely made doc is an utterly absorbing ode to a restless traveler and tireless humanitarian.
