Sebastião Salgado

Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado wrote a brief article about his time in Kuwait in 1991 for the Sunday portion of The New York Times this morning. His photographs are really incredible, and I was really surprised to see his photographs of the oil fires - most of which I have never seen before. He has a new book coming out soon titled: "Kuwait: Desert on Fire."
