Counter An Aperture Classic

Sebastião Salgado’s epic Workers: An Archaeology of the Industrial Age brings us a global epic that transcends mere image making to become an affirmation of the enduring spirit of working men and women. Workers has received international acclaim, resulting in Salgado being heralded as one of the foremost photographers of our age.

“Salgado unveils the pain, the beauty, and the brutality of the world of work on which everything rests. This is a collection of deep devotion and impressive skill.” —Arthur Miller
