More than those of any other living photographer, Sebastião Salgado's images of the world's poor stand in tribute to the human condition. The winner of numerous international photography awards, Salgado has renewed the "concerned photographer" genre. His transforming black and white photographs bestow dignity on the most isolated and neglected, from famine-stricken refugees in the Sahel to the indigenous peoples of South America. Workers is a global epic that transcends mere imagery to become an affirmation of the enduring spirit of working women and men. Workers is an archaeological exploration of the activities that have defined labor from the Stone Age through the Industrial Age, to the present. Divided into six categories—Agriculture, Food, Mining, Industry, Oil, and Construction—it unearths layers of visual information to reveal the ceaseless human activity at the core of modern civilization. An elegy for the passing of traditional methods of labor and production, Workers delivers a message of endurance and hope.

An exhibition sponsored by Eastman Kodak Company, Printing, Publishing Professional Imaging, organized by Lélia Wanick Salgado, the exhibition Curator.
