  • 1. Sebastiao Salgado: Photojournalist By: Chris Prozora
  • 2. Sebastiao Salgado Sebastiao Salgado was born in Brazil in 1944 and went to Sao Paulo University in France to study economics. His vocation as an international coffee consortium enkindled Salgado’s photographic abilities and inspired him to be a photojournalist
  • 3. Salgado photographed the plantations he was visiting in Africa. Most of Salgado’s photographs reflect lives of the lower class and refugees, especially those in Latin America and Africa (such as Workers: An Archaeology of the Industrial Age and Migrations: Humanity in Transition ). His Marxist beliefs are eminent in his subject choice and associated themes.
  • 4. Salgado’s photographs are all in black and white, which emphasizes (or subdues) the contrast of his subjects and background. Also, several of his pictures (top right) contain a motif (usually masses of people).
  • 5. Salgado’s photographs often contain religious and symbolic elements. Religious elements are exemplified in: The far left photograph is reminiscent of Mary, the top photograph contains a religious painting, and the upper middle photograph was taken at a church gate in Bombay. Symbolism is present in the lower middle photograph (the door), which represents time (emphasized by the juxtaposition of the grandmother and the children. The bottom photograph illustrates chiaroscuro (light/dark imagery), which portrays the children (Kenyan refugees) leaving the optimism of childhood and entering reality through a rite of passage.
  • 6. “ It’s not my intention Just to make them think ” to give people guilty consciences, Salgado deemed that he was a journalist more than an artist. He photographed events such as the Rwandan Hutu migration to Tanzania in 1994 (bottom right), conflicts between law enforcement and Brazilian workers in 1986 (bottom left), and the peasant victory over the Cuiaba plantation, Brazil (1996).
