Salgado's art, as shown in this photo taken in the San Ysidro, CA border-control office, gives a voice to the oppressed of the world. It is this that I, myself, will spend this semester studying in English 150. As a main source of inspiration, I will be using Salgado's book, Migrations: Humanity in Transition.
Salgado said, "I hope that the person who visits my exhibitions, and the person who comes out, are not quite the same." Thus, by exposing his art, I imagine I have the same motive. I hope that whomever reads this blog will change in some way. I hope they will have a desire to be the change that this world needs.
