That why I say I think it's largely a pragmatic decision. His world (the one of photojournalism) changed around him. Salgado went to digital, with a stated reason being the difficulty of getting film safely through airports.
I think going digital is about getting the images out safely, you can upload via remote satellite feed if need be... To get the images of the afghan girl out, Steve had to hand sew the film into his jacket that he wore through security at the airport.. He sewed the strips into the lining of the jacket in complete darkness remember... Not easy)...
Digital upload is way easier
