This work represents the first part of Sebastiao Salgado’s project to chart the displacement of peoples across geographical and political boundries. In a series of photographs, Salgado shows the efforts of Brazilian peasants to survive in the face of joblessness and extreme poverty and to reclaim the land they see as their natural heritage. Introduced by the Portuguese writer Jose Saramango and accompanied by the poems of Brazilian composer and singer Chico Buarque de Hollanda, “Terra” provides a photographic record of the struggles of the “landless” of Brazil.
