    Salgado on TED Talks

    I just saw this on TED talks a few minutes ago. I searched but could not see it as having been posted before.

    The related "Genesis" book is available for pre-order in USA (ships in June); but may already be available in UK.

    Yup, I already saw it as available in amazon uk. Pre-ordered mine, can't wait for it.

    Yes I think Genesis is taken on digital.

    The Genesis book/project started in 2004. As to how much is from digital, this might help:
    "Up until about 2009 Sebastião worked exclusively with film, it got to a point where his assistants would be carrying 50+lb bags of film while travelling, and in a post-9/11 world, TSA screenings had begun to make this rather difficult for Salgado. He recalls a friend suggesting he try switching to digital, which he was reluctant to do, but he did ultimately embrace the new technology. His process involves digital capture of his images which are then printed onto contact sheets, and then, just like he would do in a traditional darkroom setting, they are processed digitally to mimic the film stock he had mastered so well (Kodak Tri-X) and finally sent to a lab which converts the digital image into a medium format film negative and prints them using a traditional darkroom. (Man; Evening with Salgado) To my knowledge, this process is not widely used and is almost unique to him."

    This method, while not common at all, is far from unique to him and people have been discussing and doing such on many of the Epson and digital B&W printing forums for quite some time. Unfortunately with some of the attitudes here its forbidden to even discuss. Maybe this new book and his technique will open some minds.
