Advice to young photographers from a master of photography.

“If you’re young and have the time, go and study. Study anthropology, sociology, economy, geopolitics. Study so that you’re actually able to understand what you’re photographing. What you can photograph and what you should photograph.”

Sebastião Salgado

 

Much has been written and discussed regarding the work and career of Sebastiao Salgado – take the time to listen to him and form your own opinion. If you haven’t watched Wim Wenders’ ‘Salt of the Earth’ documentary then please do. I doubt very much you will be disappointed.
