Salgado Before He Was A Superstar


This entry at the Lens blog (New York Times) on Sebastião Salgado is eye-opening both for what it reveals about his pre-superstar years and for the contrast it sets up with the many critics - think Susan Sontag, Ingrid Sischey, Michael Kimmelman, for starters - who are so incredibly dismissive of he, his motives, and his work.

It's virtually impossible to be dismissive of his work- but one really has to wonder what this "pre-superstar" Salgado would have to say about the current one who enthusiastically allies himself with the destroyers of the earth so that he can afford the wall sized prints that now seem to match his ego.
