Sebastião Salgado: The silent drama of photography

One of my greatest photographic inspirations is Sebastião Salgado. I love his large scale photographs and long term projects that I find genuinely moving. He is one of the best living photo journalists of our age.

Here, he tells a deeply personal story of the craft that nearly killed him, and shows breathtaking images from his latest work, Genesis, which documents the world's forgotten people and places.

Although from a few years ago this is one not to be missed.

Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay.

A Passion for Africa: Interview with Award-Winning Wildlife Photog Morkel Erasmus

Morkel Erasmus is an award-winning wildlife photographer based out of South Africa. He has an abiding passion for his country and its animals, which comes out in his beautiful photography that is perhaps best described as ‘intimate'.

I love working in monochrome as it just adds a timeless mood to wildlife photography. It forces our colour-weary eyes (bombared with Technicolor TV and vibrant printed advertisements and billboards all day) to focus back to the basics of form, line, texture, light and mood.
