On April 29, the Saturday preceding Frieze New York and the TEFAF New York fairs, the Madison Avenue Gallery Walk will give the public time and space to visit the over 100 galleries that span Madison Avenue and its adjacent side streets from East 57th St. up to East 86th St.
Live Arts with Savona has chosen to spotlight on artist Sebastião Salgado at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery located at 1100 Madison Avenue.
“Photography is not objective. It is deeply subjective—my photography is consistent ideologically and ethically with the person I am.”
Sebastião Salgado is an award-winning Brazilian photographer known for his arresting documentation of communities around the world. Sebastião Salgado was born on February 8, 1944, in Aimorés, Brazil. After an early career as an economist, he decided to become a photographer in the 1970s. Salgado has earned fame for his stark photos of people coping with the effects of poverty, famine, industrialization and political oppression. He has published several books and has received awards for his socially conscious photojournalism.
