Sebastian Salgado, Stills Gallery Edinburgh.

In these depressing days, as those English bluebottles settle back on the steaming ordures of warmed-up Thatcherism, it is heartening to see good work by a successful Marxist humanist with a king-size fly-swat. Such is Salgado.

Sebastian Salgado achieved ore-eminence as a photo journalist in a relatively short time. An economist and fugitive from the Brazilian military dictatorship of the 60s, he came to work in London torthe International Coffee Organisation. While on assignment forlhem in Africa he started borrowing his wife's camera to illustrate reports and quickly found that the pictures made points more vividly than dry statistics. Since that time (the mid 70s) he has accumulated a world-wide body oi work and published three books: Other Americas, dealing with the strength of peasantry clinging to their lands; Man in Distress, on the Sahel; and The End of the Road, about Spain. The profits from the last two books were donated to Medecins sans Frontiers. In 1983 Salgado was given the W. Eugene Smith Award for Humanistic Photography. This touring exhibition is the first major review of his work.

The show includes examples from some of Salgado’s long-term special projects such as his most recent one on manual labour. Soviet steel workers, Bangladeshi ship-breakers: the images are not all harrowing. There is plenty of humour and weirdness. His professed aim is to identify as far as possible with the subject and thereby maximise the viewer’s empathy. In pouring rain, ant-like, thousands of half-naked men clamber and slither on the side of a giant muddy pit. Swarming on rickety wooden ladders, bearing huge sacks of earth, they could be Zigguraf builders of ancient Sumeria. They are in fact the freelance Brazilian gold prospectors of the Amazonian Sierra Pelada doing their thing in the late 803. From the Inca-haunted Ecuadorian highlands, a dead man shrouded in shaggy animal pelts lies open eyed so that he can see his way into the next world. From the Sahel, the all too familiar: an emaciated baby drooping from a weighing scale like offal in a nightmare butchers.

if we in the rich ‘First World’ cannot react with good sense and generosity to the underpinning appeal of all these pictures we must soon (as my Yankee friends would say) kiss our backsides and the whole planet goodbye. (Patrick Vidaud)

exhibition concentrates on his smaller pictures. many of them painted in the 1980s. and will also be shown in Barcelona and Dublin.
