Salgados Opus Magnum An die Ränder unserer Welt - ein monumentales Bildwerk über die letzten Paradiese der Erde Anders als die Collector's Edition, die als großformatiges Portfolio ohne strenge thematische Gliederung erscheint, zeigt die Trade Edition eine abweichende Auswahl an Bildern, geografisch geordnet in fünf Kapiteln: Im Süden des Planeten, Zufluchtsorte, Afrika, Nördliche Weiten, Amazonien und Panatal. Zwar wurden beide Bücher aus derselben Werkgruppe zusammengestellt, in ihrer Herangehensweise unterscheiden sie sich jedoch radikal voneinander. Aber natürlich sind beide Publikationen faszinierende Dokumente eines fotografischen Abenteuers, das es in diesen Dimensionen noch nie gegeben hat: Salgados Genesis-Projekt.

Globalization is transforming the world in ways that we are only just beginning to understand. It is often assumed that social movements, such as that of labour, will simply be overwhelmed by these changes. The contributions in this volume point to this conclusion as at best premature and possibly also misguided.

The Body at Risk: Photography of Disorder, Illness, and Healing is the first book to explore the ways that photojournalists and social documentarians have conceptualized the human subject as a site of both good and ill health. The volume looks at photographs depicting child laborers; Depression-era health programs; general medical care in the southern United States at mid-century; people with HIV, AIDS, and polio, along with their caretakers and the health workers who advocate for them; environmental pollution; physical and psychological injuries received during warfare; domestic violence; and emergency care in the modern urban hospital. It brings together ten significant bodies of photographs made over the past one hundred years to show how human health topics have been represented for the general public and how the emphasis on health has shifted; how photography has been used to present and promote certain points of view about health and the social circumstances that affect it, both positively and negatively; and how photography has helped shape public knowledge of and opinion about health care and some of the events and circumstances that engender it.
