Salt of the Earth


1 hr 50 min
English & subtitles
5 Stars

A documentary about Sebastiao Salgado, a Brazilian photographer. It gives us his live, and his work. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it will leave you filled with hope by the end. You have seen his work, but probably didn't realize it was his. He has done work for the UN and Doctors Without Borders. He reminds me of a modern day Edward S. Curtis. He has 'saved' many of the indigenous peoples of South America with his cameras. There were areas where it was a little long, but hang in there. It's a beautiful documentary and well worth the time investment.
