His images of the Sahel famine and his colossal project Workers would be enough to make his reputation and justify all the awards he has received. But there is more. A native of Brazil, trained as an economist, Sebastiao Salgado has shown a constant faith in mankind, a solidarity that never wavers or flinches in the face of pan, an ability to analyze extreme situations, a fierce drive to affirm what he truly is, a humanist photographer. 63 duotone photos.
