Don’t miss this incredibly rare opportunity to see and hear one of the world’s most important social-documentary photographers, Sebastião Salgado. Salgado’s discerning photography documents the lives of the dispossessed with moving images of manual laborers, refugees, and extensive metropolises, which bear witness to the economic challenges and social injustice in less developed countries.
