We’ll need additional information before you can start bidding.
You can't place any bids just yet, as we still need to verify your phone number. If an opening bid does not meet a lot’s reserve price (hidden minimum), buyers may try outbidding their earlier bid in order to find that lot’s RP. If an auto-bid (user-set maximum bid) is outbid, the bidding log will show the first and final steps of that user's auto-bid in a row.

From a Brazilian mine where fifty thousand mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down slippery ladders in search of a stray nugget of gold, to a former lake in western Africa now swallowed by the encroaching desert, where emaciated, starving people walk over its surface of sand, photographer Sebastião Salgado explores the lives of the planet’s often ignored people with a critical eye and an empathetic heart.

For seven years he roamed Latin America, walking for days to remote mountain villages, to produce a major work on the “other Americans.” In the mid-1980s, he worked for more than fifteen months with a French humanitarian aid group in the famine-engulfed Sahel region of Africa, and created a moving, extraordinarily human document of the beauty and strength of people in the deepest, most abominable kind of suffering.
