Part activist and part globe trekking photographer, Sebastião Salgado is most famous for recording the migration of people, and culture, around the world. Brazilian economist turned artist, Sebastiao Salgado revisits his adventurous career via the breathtaking images he captured. In this extensive conversation, the lover of the light discusses subjects that range from the tyrannical government that ruled Brazil in the past, adapting to extreme weather around the world, and how the new digital technology has affected his creative process. More than a comprehensive documentary about his life, the film is crafted as a biography and art exploration with Salgado intercutting and showcasing the work that highlights his unique journey.
