Re: Salgado special
Fascinating site - I love the Guardian's website anyhoo...
Thing about this Salgado is: he oiperates on what I would call a BIBLICAL scale, know what I mean. The guy is the Cecil B DeMille of reportage. Grand scale, magnificent light piercing through menacing skies above the forlorn earth, men slaves like ants crawling above the ground. You half expect Charlton heston to burst across the frame holding the 10 Commandements, ya know?
And I LIKE the man, I think his stuff is great, but I couldn't help pocking a little gentle fun because there is so much (justified) REVERENCE for his work.
Hope you don't mind, Herve?
