An Uncertain Grace represents Salgado's journey through poor villages in the Andes, shanty communities of miners in the Brazilian jungle, and refugee camps in famine-stricken Ethiopia, Chad and Mali. This book is one of the most important visual records of life in the twentieth century. Sebastião Salgado has been awarded virtually every major photographic prize in France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Sweden and the United States. A former member of Magnum Photos and recipient of the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, he has twice been named Photographer of the Year by the International Center of Photography.

Born in Brazil in 1944, Sebastião Salgado began his career as an economist before shifting to photography in 1973. Sebastião Salgado has covered major news events around the world - the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, wars in Angola and the Spanish Sahara, the taking of Israeli hostages in Entebbe, while also pursuing more personal and in-depth documentary projects. For seven years he roamed Latin America, walking for days to remote mountain villages; the result of this journey was Autres Ameriques (Other Americas), which received the Kodak/City of Paris award.
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.
