„The photographer always takes pictures against the background of his past and history, which encompasses the entire apparatus of his ideas and, not least, his ideology. I’m not necessarily talking about political ideology. His ideology of life, his social status and geographical location play just as important a role. Photography is basically like an intellectual and aesthetic intervention which is connected with the photographer’s own past, with that he has felt and seen. The photographic language is a language with ulterior motives. Fundamentally it is similar to written language and comprises an ideology which was written along with the photographer’s past. The way in which he chooses to present the photographic subjects reveals something about the nature of his own thoughts.“ (Sebastião Salgado)
