Book Club Live: Sebastião Salgado in conversation with Peter Fetterman

5 pm BST | 6pm CET | 12 pm ET | 9 am PT
As part of the Book Club live events, Photo London is delighted to present Brazilian social documentary photographer and photojournalist Sebastião Salgado in conversation with gallerist Peter Fetterman.
One of the most recognised photographers working today, Salgado is primarily known for his long-term social documentary projects, having travelled to over 120 countries to shoot his projects.
He has completed a photographic project about Brazil's Amazon forest and its inhabitants, the indigenous communities; it aims to raise awareness of the threats they face from illegal logging, gold mining, dam building, cattle and soybean farming and, increasingly, from climate change. This project will be presented to the public this year in the form of exhibitions and a monographic book titled AMAZÔNIA (Taschen, 2021).
In this exclusive conversation, Salgado will present AMAZÔNIA in conversation with his long time gallerist and photography expert Peter Fetterman, whose eponymous gallery in Santa Monica holds one of the USA's most extensive inventories of classic 20th Century photography, particularly humanist photography.
