Sebastião Salgado’s Eternal Images of Humanity on the Move

Reading Time: 6 minutes Sixteen years ago, Sebastião Salgado published Exodus. The Brazilian photographer spent six years, and visited more than 35 countries, to document the fraught, desperate and forced mass movement of humans around the globe. He photographed the roads they walked, the impermanent camps they built, the overcrowded city slums where they ended up.
