Photography Hero: Sebastião Salgado

Heroes, Videos

Not only could I listen to this man’s wonderfully accented, beautifully gravelly voice for hours, I could admire his photography for ever. But there is so much more to Sebastião Salgado than his photographic talent. His life story and what he has a achieved, not only in photography but also in conservation (he has planted over 2 million trees in the Amazon rainforest no less), is so moving and he tells it so beautifully in this TED Talk. Sebastião Salgado is a photographer, economist, anthropologist, environmental activist… and now the subject of a movie documentary ‘Salt of the Earth’ that has received rave reviews at Cannes 2014. This man is a legend. By the way I had to watch this video with a box of tissues!
