Sebastiao Salgado is a very famous photographer around the world. Considering like on of the best photographer of the 21h century, with an amazing work across countries and cultures, he makes appear a reality, often hard to see.
This photographer makes me remember my first years at college. I had a photography class, and my professor was a reporter journalist, specialized in war countries. He takes wonderful pictures that he shows and explains us during class.
When instructions was given and class was at half, he brings us to a permanent Salvador’s exposition, located in a art gallery, just next to my Paris` school.
