Terra: Struggle of the Landless

by Sebastiao Salgado

An intense and touching tribute to the countless peasants of Brazil who struggle to have a land in a hostile environment, faced with some of the harshest conditions on earth, Salgado's photographic masterpiece is a call of distress and compassion from those who cannot express themselves to the world. It is also a praise of remarkable beauty, to the indestructible courage and hope of human nature, which continues the struggle where life seems impossible. Stunning and thought-inspiring, Salgado's internationally acclaimed art blends emotion and devotion with technical mastery to achieve a revealing and dignifying picture of stories which need to be told. 143 pages. 10 x 13 inches.

SIGNED FIRST EDITION. Lavishly illustrated with black & white photographs. Preface by Jose Saramago and poetry by Chico Buarque. Captions for each illustration at end of volume by Sebastiao Salgado.

Published by: Phaidon Press Limited, London, 1997.
