"A moving tribute to a peerless talent." - Andrew Pulver, Guardian

"Many of the images - and Salgado's accounts of taking them - are as soul-shattering as they are breathtaking." - New York Post

For the last 40 years acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado has travelled the world, tracing the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed and documented many of the major events of our times, taking in wars, famine, genocide and exodus.

But now he is embarking on a new journey; to discover pristine territories, grandiose landscapes and wild nature as part of a huge photographic tribute to the planet’s beauty.

Salgado’s accomplished, moving work and his inspirational life are revealed to us in this Oscar-nominated documentary by his son, Juliano, and world-renowned filmmaker Wim Wenders, himself an avid photographer. Powerful, affecting and truly profound, it is not just a portrait of a great artist but one of life itself.

Screening as part of Kino Dreams - the Wim Wenders retrospective.

Nominated: Best Documentary, Oscars, 2015
