It is hardly a secret that Sebastião Salgado is having an exhibition of his latest work here in Lisbon. After many publications shedding some light on this brilliant Brazilian photographer, the first days of his exhibition were defined by lines of people waiting to see this amazing eight year journey, photographed with a beautiful sensibility, that proves that photography is more that clicking a button.
Still it is definitely worth it to mention it again, as for those who have yet to visit, it truly should not be missed. For the ones who are not portuguese, this is a perfect time to plan your visit, since the exhibition will be on until the 2nd of August.
Here at São Mamede, we think this is a true example of great photography, and we were thrilled to visit the exhibition that has been exciting people from around the world. After all it takes something truly fascinating to bee seen by over two million people.
