Sebastiao Salgado and DxO FilmPack:
“Thanks to DxO FilmPack, I have been able to make a smooth transition to digital.”
A veritable legend in black and white film photography photography, Sebastiao Salgado has moved to digital without losing the grain and contrast characteristic of his famous signature prints.
Now he has turned to digital, and with the help of specialists, has pinpointed a method for exactly reproducing the same results as for film photography. DxO FilmPack represents one of the first indispensible links in the chain for properly processing his photographs.
Today, all of Sebastiao Salgado’s digital images are processed using DxO FilmPack before being transferred to film using a Kodak imager and baryta paper.
“I have found a system that suits me — I have chosen ‘silver halide-digital,’ with which I achieve even better results than with all-silver halide.”
Born in Brazil in 1944, and for the first part of his career an economist, Sebastião Salgado has devoted himself since 1973 to social and humanitarian photo reportage.
The famine in the Sahel, and then the working conditions of immigrants to Europe inspired his first works. Successively a member the Sigma, Gamma, and Magnum photo press agencies, he, along with his wife Lélia Wanick Salgado, subsequently created his own press agency, Amazonas Images, through which he continues to provide photographic testimony of people’s lives, their work, their suffering, their migrations.
Famous for his numerous reports in black and white, and lauded countless times for his outstanding photography, Sebastiao Salgado has also published a large number of collections of his work.
