Sebastião Salgado receives Praemium Imperiale 2021 award


Recommended Posts

He deserves it. He is not only an extraordinary photographer, but he is also involved in important green initiatives. Many people do not know that he and his wife are responsible for a major reforestation project in his native state in Brazil (https://institutoterra.org/) that is proof that a completed devastated area can be changed in a relatively short time to sustain a wide variety of wildlife.

Also, there is a wonderful 2014 documentary on his photography and ecological work called "The Salt of the Earth". Worth a look if you can find it.

It's available on Amazon Prime (UK) but I'm not signed up to Prime...
