Sebastiao Salgado began his career as a professional photographer in Paris in 1973 and subsequently worked with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos. In 1994 he and his wife Lelia created Amazonas Images, an agency that handles exclusively his work. Salgado's photographic projects have been featured in many exhibitions as well as books, including Other Americas (1986), Sahel: l'homme en detresse (1986), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations (2000), and The Children (2000). Lelia Deluiz Wanick Salgado studied Architecture and Urban Planning in Paris. Her interest in photography started in the early 1970s and she moved on to conceiving and designing photography books and organizing exhibitions, numerous of them on Sebastiao Salgado. Since 1994 Lelia is director of the press agency Amazonas Images. Translated in more than 20 languages, Mia Couto is Mozambique's most celebrated author. His first novel, Sleepwalking Land, was chosen by an international jury as one of twelve best African books published in the 20th century. He lives in Maputo, Mozambique and works as an ecologist.

I'm from Argentina and so my language is Spanish, so I apologize for not using English for this review. The book Sebastiao Salgado's Africa (GO) published by Taschen is a feast for the eyes. Well printed, well bound, good to have it in our hands. The content is unique: each photograph is not only technically perfect but also conveys much feeling and, above all, whether portraying most of the miseries none of the image is take apart the dignity of the protagonists. I think, above all things, Sebastiao Salgado have a lot of RESPECT for those who photograph. It's also very important the beautiful texts of Mozambique novelist Mia Couto, that accompanying perfectly those expressive photographs. In short, a book inevitable, not only for lovers of photography, but for those who are still capable of looking at how terrible it can be humans and have hope in a future redemption.
Last words to Amazon, whose treatment and professionalism makes it a pleasure to make a purchase with them.
This book is very well made.
To start with, it is a book written in 3 languages: English, French, and German.
Every picture has a number and every caption explaining the picture is written in the three languages.
The images are big and powerful. Some are beautiful and sweet, others are very strong and shocking. If you can't see the image of a famine dying of starvation or corpses all over the ground, I don't recommend.
For the strong at heart, who admires beautiful photography and want to see what else is out there in Africa.
One of the most beautiful books I've seen.
