Sebastião Salgado - A Life in Photography
Jun 03, 2017 — Sep 02, 2017
Peter Fetterman Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibition of the photographs of Sebastião Salgado. Spanning the entirety of Salgado’s career, with sixty images on view from 1978 through 2014, the chronological installation at Peter Fetterman Gallery will showcase iconic prints and new acquisitions culled from the myriad of socio-political topics, cultures and conflicts explored by the photographer. The installation will specifically focus on the human subjects of Salgado’s work and are selected from his several long-term, anthropological reportages including Other Americas (1986), Workers (1993), Migrations (2000) and Genesis (2013). Salgado is often referred to as a “concerned photographer” who imbues his subjects with dignity; Focusing an empathetic lens on marginalized people working and struggling through hardship as result of political or environmental influence, or maintaining their traditional way of life against the encroachments of modernity.
