Salgado interview in The New York Times Magazine from 1991…Enlightening…

“The trouble with color film, Salgado says, is that “it is too much real. It doesn’t allow you to have a single degree of imagination.” Besides, he adds, when he used color, “I was very preoccupied with color. It was a huge distraction.””

Salgado interview from 2008 in Der Tagesspiegel… for people who understand German… I don’t.

“Q: Sie sind bekannt dafür, dass Sie ausschließlich mit Schwarzweißfilmen arbeiten…

Salgado: …soll ich Ihnen was verraten? Ich habe angefangen, digital zu fotografieren.”

Does Salgado say there, he shoots digital now? O’Lord Almighty!
