    Brazilian documentary photographer Sebastian Salgado, who many of you probably know shot numerous photo essays and published photo books on human suffering (including the plight of miners and laborers in South America), is now releasing a book on landscapes and nature. Link to the New York Times slide show is here:

    I recall from his earlier work that he shot exclusively with Leicas; I do not know if he did the same for this series, but they are beautiful BW landscapes and nature photos nevertheless.

    The images are beautiful, and the locations are breath-taking.

    IIRC, he now uses digital, processes to b&w in SEP using Tri-x (I assume tweaked).
