Sebastiao Salgado: A Conversation

Who is Sebastiao Salgado? I will just say that his Leica M7 camera set is currently selling on ebay for US $130,680.00:


“Salgado uses three Leica cameras. Most of the time he uses 28mm, 35mm and 60mm lenses (one for each camera body). He uses black-and-white Tri-X film. In low-light situations and indoors he uses T-Max 3200 film, which precludes the need for flash. He does not develop his own film but has a friend do it for him. He does most of his own printing but sometimes calls upon friends to help in this darkroom work also”.


Some of his work can be seen here. Here are some slideshows:
