The silent drama of photography

The silent drama of photography

Photographer Sebastião Salgado talks about the importance of Forests, how humans have destroyed so much creating their societies, and how easily we can repair the damage we’ve done. He doesn’t just talk about it, he shows us, and he’s actually doing it.

from Ted Talks: Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay. Here, he tells a deeply personal story of the craft that nearly killed him, and shows breathtaking images from his latest work, Genesis, which documents the world’s forgotten people and places.
