Sebastião Salgado is one of my top 5 favorite photographers. He is quite famous all around the world but is really a huge iconic photographer in France where he studied economics and got a pHD (Doctorat). In this deep thought video from TED talks where Salgado is on stage, you will have a unique opportunity to listen to a master in capturing social trends, misery, work issues, developpoing countried problems and how he has a stunning eye to get a lot out of a scene with his black and white styled photography. In the video, you can admire a lot of the photos he took. He talks about this years long project he has been working on.
Salgado is a big fan of Leica cameras.
