THE SALT OF THE EARTH

Sebastião Salgado has created some of the most indelible photographs of our time. His black- and-white images bring an artful composition to chronicling humanity’s “salt of the earth” in multiyear projects such as “Workers,” “Migrations” and “Genesis.” This film, directed by his son Juliano Ribeiro Salgado and Wim Wenders, brings an insider’s and outsider’s perspective on the family, illuminating the key role played by Salgado’s wife Lélia Deluiz Wanick and their work on the nature preserve Instituto Terra.
