For a decade, Serra Pelada evoked the long-promised El Dorado as the world’s largest open-air gold mine, employing some 50,000 diggers in appalling conditions.
Today, Brazil’s gold rush is merely the stuff of legend, kept alive by a few happy memories, many pained regrets—and Sebastião Salgado’s photographs.
This signed edition gathers the complete black-and-white portfolio in impeccable, grand-scale, museum-quality reproductions.
Collector’s Edition (No. 101–1,100), each numbered and signed by Sebastião Salgado
