An Evening with Sebastião Salgado
FOR ALL TICKETING INFORMATION, PLEASE VISIT THE BROAD STAGE WEBSITE OR CONTACT THEIR BOX OFFICE AT 310.434.3200
The renowned Brazilian documentary photographer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Sebastião Salgado is best-known for three career defining projects: Workers, documenting the vanishing life of manual laborers across the world; Migrations, illuminating the epic displacement of the world’s people at the close of the twentieth century; and most recently, Genesis, the result of Salgado’s epic expedition to rediscover the peoples and natural world that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society. A man of prodigious determination, having traveled to over 100 countries for his work, Salgado has become increasingly invested in issues of eco-conservation and environmental education, creating the Instituto Terra with his wife Lélia to restore a small part of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil. Joined in conversation by author Pico Iyer, one of the world’s most revered travel writers, Salgado shares the stories behind some of the most perspective-shifting images of life on Earth during this unique evening with ALOUD at The Broad Stage.
