Publisher's description

The first edition of Sebastião Salgado: Other Americas was published in 1985 by the French publisher Contrejour, and included photographs from Salgado's numerous trips through Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala and Mexico. The Brazil-born, Paris-based photographer traveled extensively in Latin America between 1977 and 1984 to document the shifting religious and political climate in the region, especially as reflected in Latin America's rural cultures and traditional lifestyles. Other Americas, Salgado's first photobook, included portraits of farmers and indigenous people, landscapes and pictures of the region's spiritual traditions. An instant classic, the book received countless awards and prizes and has been called the visual equivalent to the magic of a Gabriel García Márquez tale. This new edition of Other Americas, an English-language reissue of the 1985 Contrejour edition, brings back into print one of the most powerful visions of life in Central and South America ever recorded.The first edition of Sebastião Salgado: Other Americas was published in 1985 by the French publisher Contrejour, and included photographs from Salgado's numerous trips through Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala and Mexico.

Press

'These are not the faces of despair, but the faces of solitude, peering at a rapidly changing world that both calls out to them and rejects them.' The New York Times

'The intimacy of Salgado’s photographs reflects the patience and passion that he dedicated to taking them.' The New York Times

'His use of light and shadow adds a dimension of unreality that dramatizes the solemnity, sentimentality and absurd contradictions of Latin American societies.' The New York Times, from 1989 review of original book release

'The people of South America are portrayed with dignity and tenderness in this impressive collection –NBC NewsOther Americas was shot during a time of industrial growth, rising inequality and political turmoil, and shows a way of life under threat.' The Independent
