    I had a look at Selgado's pictures on the BBC website. Breathtaking..

    Thanks Andy.

    I have been to two of Salgado's Exhibitions, one in the Brazilian embassy and one at the Hayward. Though his work is very controversial and promotes mixed emotions, the Hayward exhibition blew me away, and I don't mind admitting that I shed a tear or two over some of the images. The eye contact of his photographs of children really did give me, the viewer, a closeness between myself and the sitter, really reaching in to the soul. I am pretty sure that he does not do his own printing, that said, who ever does it for him is first class.

    I will be sure not to miss this one either.

    Thanks again

    Stoo
