Sebastião Salgado. Africa


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.

The history of Salgado's Africa

Ivan,4 novembre 2021
This is a wonderful book that covers several trips to Africa made by Sebastiao Salgado. There are photos from one of his earliest books "Sahel. The end of the road" along with photos from "Exodus" and "Genesis". It is a wonderful book that shows the many different faces of the continent as well as parts of its bloody history. The photos are an aesthetical and emotional tour de force. The sequencing of Lelia Salgado is masterful and the book is one to be read many times. Truly one of the best.

This is an amazing and touching book! Everybody should see this book!


Denise,1 novembre 2021
This book shows the outcome of the works of Salgado as reporter in Africa. The pictures testify to the catastrophic events that have afflicted the African people (drought, genocide, exile, etc.) and capture the beauty and the pride of landscape, animals, people. Salgado gives dignity to every little thing, even the most insignificant one at first sight. He stimulates the observer to go beyond the pictures to grasp the very essence. An intimate production that reaches straight to the heart.

From real life to my soul

Nicola,29 ottobre 2021
Ho seguito Salgado per molti anni, ho visto alcune delle sue mostre in Europa, e mi sono sempre soffermato sulla tecnica, qualità e professionalità delle sue opere. Oggi ho 56 anni e posso dire che negli ultimi 30 anni la mia ammirazione per Salgado è diventata "intima", rivedere il suo percorso umano aiuta a capire la mia vita e il mio spirito. Tutti i suoi libri sono un viaggio complesso e nessuno dovrebbe privarsi di tali emozioni.

A feast for the eyes and soul

Sorin,28 ottobre 2021
This is one of the best photo books of the remarcable photographer Sebastião Salgado. The captivating images reveal a world as real as it is far removed from Western consumerist society. The photos penetrate your soul and remain there, replacing the clichés of our representations of the black continent. A must have photobook.
