For the last 40 years, the photographer Sebastiao Salgado has been traveling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He had witnessed some of the major events of our recent history: international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet's beauty.

I absolutely love and profoundly respect Mr Salgado and his wife

I absolutely love and profoundly respect Mr Salgado and his wife. I am a pro photographer and often shoot in B&W. Mr Salgado and his wonderful wife are both aspiring individuals and in my mind, Sebastiao is what a photographer should be, a relentless and conscientious person delivering the truth to his fellow human beings. They both have been encouraging individuals that have influenced my work and my view towards our fragile planet to a great depth. He is truly a remarkable photographer and a caring activist. Our planet is in desperate need of more people like this husband and wife team, simple. Thank you.

An Extraordinary Film Chronicling the Lives of People Around the World

This is a very special film - photographs taken of The People in many lands and cultures, under many different circumstances - most in grueling conditions of either hard labor and poverty. The majority are born into these circumstances and will spend the rest of their lives working and living this way. Sebastiao Salgado spent his life chronicling the lives of People - just "ordinary" People. It was this film which had he and his wife return to Brazil where they were born and where, together, they recreated the land in which he's been raised. This gave rise to his wonderful book "Genesis" because they restored the land that had been savaged by others.

Salgado's pictures are often better than ever could be fathomed

Words do little justice to this documentary, and my review will do little justice to my words. 5/5 is not enough to give this masterpiece. I, for one, cannot understand how this is not talked about by people everyday. Salgado's pictures are often better than ever could be fathomed, and the story told is filled with humanistic substance that will touch the soul of the most hardened. Brilliant is not enough. Genius is not enough. Maybe undying love is what I'm describing.

Phenomenal Film!!!!

This is one of the most compelling works that I've ever seen in my life. You cannot see this movie and be the same person when it's over. The presentation of Salgado's life's work is lovingly and expertly woven into this film through three narrative voices: the son, who is one of the film makers, the other film maker, and Salgado himself. The movie is both thoughtful and thought provoking. As a photographer, I am inspired to take on more personal projects and find passion in my work. As a human being, I am inspired to have a better understanding of my fellow man and my place and contribution on and to this earth. This movie is phenomenal.
