Sebastião Salgado has taken photographs in more than 100 countries, including some of the most remote places on earth, such as Antarctica and Siberia. He describes his style as “inside the circle,” often living with his subjects, immersed in their environments. Salgado’s black-and-white images are infused with empathy and respect for the people, wildlife, and nature he encounters.
