Synopsis: Empathy and ecstasy: An homage to Africa's people and wildlife Sebastião Salgado is one the most respected photojournalists working today, his reputation forged by decades of dedication and powerful black-and-white images of dispossessed and distressed people taken in places where most wouldn’t dare to go. Although he has photographed throughout South America and around the globe, his work most heavily concentrates on Africa, where he has shot more than 40 reportage works over a period of 30 years. From the Dinka tribes in Sudan and the Himba in Namibia to gorillas and volcanoes in the lakes region to displaced peoples throughout the continent, Salgado shows us all facets of African life today. Whether he’s documenting refugees or vast landscapes, Salgado knows exactly how to grab the essence of a moment so that when one sees his images one is involuntarily drawn into them. His images artfully teach us the disastrous effects of war, poverty, disease, and hostile climatic conditions.
This book brings together Salgado’s photos of Africa in three parts. The first concentrates on the southern part of the continent (Mozambique, Malawi, Angola, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia), the second on the Great Lakes region (Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya), and the third on the Sub-Saharan region (Burkina Faso, Mali, Sudan, Somalia, Chad, Mauritania, Senegal, Ethiopia). Texts are provided by renowned Mozambique novelist Mia Couto, who describes how today’s Africa reflects the effects of colonization as well as the consequences of economic, social, and environmental crises.
This stunning book is not only a sweeping document of Africa but an homage to the continent’s history, people, and natural phenomena.

From the Publisher: Sebastião Salgado was born in Aimorés, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. A former economist, Salgado began his career in Paris as a professional photographer in 1973 and subsequently worked with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos. In 1994, Lélia Wanick Salgado and Sebastião Salgado created Amazonas images, an agency that handles exclusively his work. Salgado travels throughout the world for his photographic projects which have been featured in numerous international periodicals as well as books, including Other Americas (1986), Sahel: l'homme en détresse (1986), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations (2000), and The Children (2000). Exhibitions of these bodies of work tour internationally. Salgado has been awarded numerous major photographic prizes in recognition of his accomplishments and is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Together Lélia and Sebastião have been working since 1991 on the restoration of a small part of the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest, in the Rio Doce Valley, where they created Instituto Terra, a natural reserve and environmental educational center. Salgado's current photographic project is Genesis, a series of black-and-white photographs of landscapes, wildlife, and human communities around the globe that represents a search for nature in its original state.

Book Description TASCHEN, 2007. Gebundene Ausgabe. Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut Leichte Lagerspuren - Eine Hommage an Afrika: Sebastião Salgados Fotoreportagen. Sebastião Salgado hat seit Anbeginn seiner Laufbahn in Afrika gearbeitet. Seine erste Reportage in Niger entstand in den 1970er Jahren, damals berichtete er von den Unabhängigkeitskriegen in Angola, Mosambik und Spanisch-Sahara. Seither hat er Katastrophen fotografiert, die Afrikas Bevölkerungen ereilten, die Dürre in Äthiopien, Sudan und Tschad, den Völkermord in Ruanda, Tausende von Flüchtlingen zusammengepfercht in notdürftigen Lagern, auf den Straßen verhungernd, verdurstend oder dahingerafft von Epidemien. Er fotografierte die Afrikaner aber auch bei Ackerbau und Fischerei und porträtierte jene, die nach langen Jahren des Exils in ihre Heimat zurückkamen. In jüngerer Zeit ist Sebastião Salgado nach Afrika zurückgekehrt, um den Stolz und die Schönheit dieses Kontinents in Bildern festzuhalten: die Dünen und das Volk der Himba in Namibia, die Dinka im Süden Sudans, die in den Bergen lebenden Gorillas und das Virunga-Gebiet mit seinen Vulkanen in Ruanda, der demokratischen Republik Kongo und Uganda. Die Aufnahmen sind Teil des laufenden Projekts Genesis - fotografische Serien in Schwarzweiß von Landschaften, Fauna, Flora und menschlichen Gemeinschaften. Diese Arbeit ist angelegt als eine Erforschung der noch im Urzustand befindlichen Natur. 336 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch. Seller Inventory # INF1001035487
