Megan Gross and I will be conducting our research on Sebastiao Salgado. Our research process up to this point has been mainly attempting to get a feel of the the photographs that Salgado is most known for, and gathering basic reference articles on Salgado to see where we can find some deeper, more interesting places to go with our search.
One of the sources that we have come across is a book of photographs by Salgado himself, entitled, An Uncertain Grace. The photographs on the inside of the book are horrifically moving, with many pictures of starving people and children where every bone in their bodies is visible to the naked eye. It is so exciting to be investigating a photographer with such great social change in mind. The concern for people in Africa and other places makes the research much deeper and much more real.
