An Uncertain Grace

Overview

From a Brazilian mine where 50,000 mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down slippery ladders in search of a stray nugget of gold, to a former lake in western Africa now swallowed by the encroaching desert, where emaciated, starving people walk over its surface of sand, photographer Sebastião Salgado explores the live of the planet's often ignored people with a critical eye and an empathetic heart.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This lovely yet disturbing book of black-and-white photographs takes viewers from a Brazilian gold mine, where men struggle with bags of dirt, to western Africa, where starving people haunt the desert landscape. As unsettling as the photographs are, they are each tempered by the sensitive, caring eye of the photographer. Aptly titled, the collection as a whole confronts us with the most fundamental question: What place do humans have on this planet? In each photograph we see what a thin line separates hope and despair. Salgado is one of the world's finest documentary photographers, and this selection of his photographs is highly recommended.-- Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.
Booknews
Renowned humanist photographer Salgado's images of a Brazilian mine where 50,000 mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down steep mountain ladders in search of gold are among the most dramatic photographs ever produced. His photographs of Latin American peasants and famine-stricken Africans are more personal, but equally impressive and moving. Noted author and critic Eduardo Galeano introduces the photographs. Critic and curator Fred Ritchin writes about the influences that have shaped Salgado's vision. 11x123/4". Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Th taste of dust

    i cannot compete with Galeano's essay, so I wont even try. Salgado's photographs are taken from inside, from within the subject, bravely, bleeding with the lens. These pictures are not taken as a documentation, but as an event itself. To take this photographs is to be alive, to be hungry and thirsty and dirty and almost dead , is to be at the mercy of the subject. I have never seen photographs so striking and powerful, so there. These photograhs ARE.
