INFO

Other Americas is a presentation of an award winning body of work by acclaimed photographer Sebastiao Salgado (b. 1944, Brazil). Taken between 1977 and 1984 this collection of black-and-white photographs focus on Latin America, exploring it as a concept rather than a physical place. 
 
Salgado travelled across the region taking in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala and Mexico  amongst others, and capturing the plight and dignity of poor farming communities and individual lives in the neglected part of the Americas.

The people portrayed are united by shared social, religious and cultural experiences and Salgado doesn’t flinch from reflecting the harshness and cruelty that coexists alonside tenderness and sentimentality.
 
By turning his lens on the countries’ lost corners, Salgado has created a prism through which the entire continent can be viewed.
