Is this a criticism of Salgado's photography specifically...and these images? Sounds more like a criticsm of reportage/photojournalism in general to me. He is not claiming to represent what is beautiful and good, so his failure to produce photographs in this vein cannot possibly be deemed a deficiency on his part. Its a bit like saying in a critique on prestige two seater sports cars that you don't like ferraris because they are no good off road, when this applies to ALL sports cars of this type.
