For the last 40 years, the photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet’s beauty.

"The Salt of the Earth, has the power to draw you into its world, transfix, and perhaps eventually transform you."
- Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Many of the images — and Salgado’s accounts of taking them — are as soul-shattering as they are breathtaking."
- Sara Stewart, New York Post
"Most of the photographs on view in The Salt of the Earth bear witness to great suffering, and what they exalt is not the photographer’s eye but the fearful humanity that binds us all."
- Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"The Salt of the Earth is a celebration of the power of art to change the world, as well as an exploration of the considerable toll gifted artists sometimes pay for their talents, and their courage to push forward regardless"
- Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
