LA Weekly – Art/Books – Sebastiao Salgado’s Search for the Pristine – Holly Myers And Tom Christie – The Essential Online Resource for Los Angeles
He says this about his work;
“What you do is a fraction of a second, it’s there and it’s not there. But in this fraction of a second [he snaps his fingers] comes your past, comes your future, comes your relation with people, comes your ideology, comes your hate, comes your love — all together in this fraction of a second, it materializes there. I speak like this, I don’t speak in another way. No? You can put the question why I went there, but if I am there and I make the picture, I can make only this kind of picture, I cannot do two different kind of pictures.”
