Just a post to recommend Salgado's exhibition, "Genesis", on at the Natural History Museum in London until September.
I'm rarely overwhelmed by photo exhibitions, (although Adams's was brilliant), but Salgado's is just so overwhelmingly fantastic that it really does make you tingle. Every single image is a masterpiece of photography, all fantastically mono, and the most gorgeous prints I've ever seen.

I was reading an article by him the other day about how he bemoaned the day he had to turn digital and couldn't get the grain that he loved so much from negative film. He now uses software to recreate the prints as closely as possible to his old prints. I suspect he has a team of digital experts to do it for him (or his wife!). He has always been one of my favourites. I just hope the bring the show down our way and not just Paris. He has a book coming out as well hasn't he?
I must see this, I read the recent article in the BJP and thought the pictures were amazing in the magazine, I expect the prints are something else.
re. his process, he shoots digitally, uses DXO film to give a Tri-x look, and has black & white film negatives made from the final versions from which prints are made, and for archival purposes. (according to the interview).
Quote: He has a book coming out as well hasn't he?
Yes, there is an accompanying book. It's a hefty (in both senses of the word) £48 or thereabouts at the museum but you can get it cheaper youknowhere. I saw the book first as it was a present but the actual prints far exceed the quality of those in the book. But there is a lot more information on the subject matter. It's properly researched and explained.
I have a birthday coming up
Quite simply the World's best monochrome photographer in my opinion (yes, even better than Bob Carlos Clarke... and Adams).
Would love to go and see this, the video sent shivers through me...the images on the video were breathtaking!
The images are so beautiful in reality, it's a moving experience.
There's a TED talk by him, released today. I found it very interesting, not only his fantastic photos, but his personal journey.

It's not often you see a photographer with a talent as big as his. The best photographer alive in my opinion and of equal stature to Cartier-Bresson.
I'd rate Salgado above Cartier-Bresson.
The effort the guy and everyone else has put in to this latest project is phenomenal. Salgado was my favourite when I first started photography 25 years ago when I saw the Workers exhibition. He's just got better and better. CB I think was very lucky in that he had access to some very important people and occasions which is a huge advantage, but I wouldn't say his street photography was better than anyone else's. (I'll get me coat )
