Product description

Workers- Rare signed copy; First Edition

"This book is a global epic that transcends mere image-making to become an affirmation of the enduring spirit of working women and men. Sebastiao Salgado unearths layers of visual information to reveal the ceaseless human activity at the core of modern civilization. With extended captions by the photographer providing a historical and factual framework for the images, the book is divided into six essential chapters: Agriculture, Food, Mining, Industry, Oil and Construction. Though an elegy for the passing of traditional methods of labour and production, Workers ultimately delivers a dynamic message of endurance and hope through an aestheticism that is instantly arresting, irrespective of time and place."

This is a hard to find, very interesting and informative piece of photo journalism. It is packed with iconic and beautiful photographs and images and offers an insight into workers practices and lives within different industries. This copy is in excellent condition throughout , though with a few scuffs and minor scratches on the cover. There is an author's inscription on the title page. The corners of the dust jacket are slightly worn and there are some signs of wear to the top edge with a small tear to the jacket spine at the top. There is a index booklet in a pouch on the back cover.
