Salt of The Earth

This is the name of a film about photographer Sebastião Salgado. I saw it yesterday and I really like to recommend it to you all. No light movie entertainment but a moving story about his life and photography. Always traveling the world documenting areas where not many people like to go. Unless you absolutely have to. Like Doctors without borders. This is real life and it is shocking to see how terrible circumstances are for too many people in our world.

Sebastião Salgado is one of the most widely-respected of contemporary photojournalists. His in-depth bodies of work document the lives of people the world over, finding beauty, strength and hope even in those in the bleakest of circumstances.

These are some links that will take you to his images and more information about him.

If you get a chance, go see the movie and send a contribution to Doctors without borders. I will do that right now.

I understand that the movie will be presented after the summer.
