Founded by award-winning photographer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Sebastião Salgado and his wife in 1998, Instituto Terra’s mission focuses on environmental research, education, applied scientific research, and restoring the fragile subtropical rainforest ecosystem in and around a former cattle ranch near Salgado’s home town of Aimorés, Brazil. Salgado is an economist who found his calling with photography while working with the World Bank in Africa. He has published numerous books which focus on nature, environmental awareness, and human communities which live in accordance to their ancestral traditions and cultures. He and his work are the subject of the film The Salt of the Earth (2014), which won a special award at Cannes and was nominated for a 2015 Academy Award.

He is drawn to storytelling and capturing anecdotes through his photographs, hoping they entice viewers to see beauty where it may not have been recognized before.
