    Sebastiao Salgado in Washington Post

    Here's a link to some recent photos in the Arctic by Sebastiao Salgado:

    And some info from Canon re: his present equipment:

    http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/...ado_genesis.do

    Interesting that he used to shoot medium format, but went di*ital in 2008 (see page three of the Canon article). Doesn't view images on a computer, but has "proof sheets" printed and eventually a true physical negative created from the digital file and a silver print made. What a great printer he has at Dupon in Paris.

    Thanks for sharing. Salgado is one my my favorites, so it's always good to see new work from him...even if he did switch to digital.

    He prints everything the analogue way...Great post. A lot of information to go through. The Genesis project looked like a vast amount of work for everyone including the battery & backup equipment carrier. Great b&w photos. Must have used a fairly good amount of cards also.

    Thanks for sharing.. Great series and would wait for the book / exhibition..

    thinking what adaptation Canon did to make a 35 mm DSLR appear as a 645 as claimed in the interview..

    It said "...adapted so he sees a 645 frame." That seems to me to indicate a modified focusing screen.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Wow. Amazing documentation of a dying way of life. Their comfort with the cold puts my rural northern Minnesota upbringing to shame. Love the shot of the furred-up family in their home/.

    Oh I need to do this... The 35mm frame is just annoying... I always frame for the image, so if course I get stuck with cutting off image details or spending a fortune on custom frames...

    3:4 = 24mmx32mm. Careful work with a straightedge and a fine tip permanent ink pen on the matte side would suffice, or you could just scribe it so you still have the full width view.
    I masked a Bronica ETRSi screen with black Sharpie to use with my 35mm pano back, and like it better than the screen with scribed lines Bronica made.

    I like Salgado very much - I have 4 books from him at home. I still think the best one is "Other americas".

    About going digital: well - his loss. Good that he has money and fame to make second best thing.

    Wonderful. I've always liked Salgado, even when I wasn't particularly interested in photography for myself.
