Salgado – Go and study

In the Q&A session at Photo London, Sebastião Salgado was asked what he would recommend a young photographer to start his career today. And Salgado answered:

“If you’re young and have the time, go and study. Study anthropology, sociology, economy, geopolitics. Study so that you’re actually able to understand what you’re photographing. What you can photograph and what you should photograph.”

I love this article.

With the democratisation of photography and creativity, what makes anything anyone shoots impactful?  – “Understand what you want to shoot. Understand the impact your work could have. Study what makes the world move.”
