An Evening with Sebastiao Salgado

© Sebastiao Salgado presents An evening with Sebastiao Salgado

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to see and hear one of the world's most important social documentary photographers. He has created some of the most moving images about challenges facing people around the globe.

Sebastiao Salgado started his professional life as an economist and quickly found photography. His projects visually express the economic and social justice challenges in less developed nations and has been published and shown worldwide. Salgado has been awarded numerous major photographic prizes in recognition of his accomplishments and is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Together Lelia and Sebastiao 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.
