The Salt of the Earth

This documentary follows the life of the photographer Sebastião Salgado. Salgado was rained in economics but soon after graduating discovered a love for photography. In partnership with his wife, he spent the next several decades traveling the world photographing the changing human landscape. The movie was directed by Wim Wenders and his Salgado’s son, Juliano. The film is stunning in its documentation of the development of Salgado’s career, its portrayal of how a gifted artist views his subjects, and the presentation of a selection of his best and most powerful images. A huge thumbs-up for an exquisitely beautiful portrayal of a man who seems to have a special gift for being able to capture the essence of the ways people change the environment, for better and for worse, around them.
