Terra: Struggle of the Landless.
Phaidon Press, London 1997 - First edition. Original gray cloth. Light wear to the bottom boards, else fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by both Sebastiao Salgado and Nobel Prize-winning author Jose Saramago, who contributed the powerful preface to this equally powerful book. A gifted photographer and a man of great compassion, Salgado does not take frivolous pictures. Here he returns to Brazil to document the lives of peasants forced off the land by the industrialization of agriculture, "landless" farmers, some of whom were massacred when they staged a demonstration in 1996. The struggle for land continues, but there is hope, and hope, along with quiet pride, is present even in the most strained visages recorded in Salgado's magnificent duotones, works of art that convey far more "information" than televised news reports. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
