For eight years, Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado traveled through parts of the world that were still unspoiled, capturing spectacular monochrome images of animals, indigenous people, and natural terrain relatively untouched by modern society. His project was as arduous as it was ambitious: In Ethiopia, he trekked 800 kilometers because there were no roads; in the frigid Russian Arctic, he walked 47 days with 7,000 reindeer. The result of this epic expedition, which Salgado calls "my love letter to the planet," is miraculous: Hundreds of photographs of isolated tribes and jungle communities; sea animals and desert creatures; mountains, glaciers, valleys, and ravines.
