TERRA- STRUGGLE OF THE LANDLESS. PHOTOGRAPHY BY SEBASTIãO SALGADO

University Gallery, University of Essex, Colchester Campus

6 October 1997 - 1 November 1997

Terra Struggle of the Landless shows Sebastião Salgado’s work focused on the Movimento sem Terra(Landless Movement) in his native Brazil.

Sebastião Salgado's work as a documentary photographer has brought him international acclaim, most notably for his 1994 exhibition Workers: An Archaeology of the Industrial Age. This vast panorama of manual workers around the globe was a breathtaking masterpiece of humanity. 'Terra- Stuggle of the Landless' is again imbued with Salgado's ability to bring, with empathy, the plight of the poor to the world's attention. The focus is on his fellow Brazilians- the desperate struggle of the 220,000 Brazilians known collectively as the Movimiento Sem Terra.

Catherine Moseley, 1997
