Salgado, Sebastiao - LES ENFANTS DE L'EXODE
Born in Brazil in 1944, Sebastião Salgado is an economist by training. He exercised this profession a few years before starting a career as a photographer in Paris. He then worked successively with the agencies Sygma, Gamma and, in 1979, with Magnum. In 1994, he created, with Lélia Wanick Salgado, the Amazonas Images agency, devoted exclusively to his work. Very sensitive to human and social problems, Salgado sees each of his reports as long and deep investigations into the reality of his time. After having notably photographed the man at work in the basic production sector in the world (La Main de l'Homme - 1993, published in 7 languages) or denounced the tragedy of Brazilian "landless" peasants (Terra - 1997) , he draws today, after six years of reporting, a striking portrait of population movements in the world. Uprooting, exile and wandering cross this overwhelming investigation which questions the fundamental link that man forges with his territory. With Exodus and The Children of the Exodus, Salgado once again proves the extreme acuteness of his photographic commitment.
