Sebastião Salgado: The silent drama of photography
Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay. Here, he tells a deeply personal story of the craft that nearly killed him, and shows breathtaking images from his latest work, Genesis, which documents the world's forgotten people and places.
Sebastião Salgado captures the dignity of the dispossessed through large-scale, long-term projects.

SCATTERED by Lindsay Lindenbaum
THIS IS A GREAT KICKSTARTER PROJECT,
PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINKS AND MAKE A VERY GENEROUS DONATION TO THE PROJECT.
A story about a man, fixated on documenting his life on camera & his struggle to overcome the demons from his past.
View the Kickstarter page for full details and to make your donation
Home movies rarely tell the whole story of someone's life. Instead, they show fragments of a story that the person behind the camera hopes and imagines his life to be. Years later, when one's current reality has faded or has become too difficult to bear, one returns to these memories, to this abridged story, to one version of the past. SCATTERED takes an unflinching look at my late father--a man who was fixated on documenting his life on film and who became estranged from me as a child--and unravels the story that he tried to create with his camera, to reveal the story that actually was.

This video made the rounds a few years ago and it seems to be making a resurgence once again on several photography & creative blogs. It may be long and the speaker presents his view from the point of a creative at a design company, but it's really worth the time to watch as most of what they talk about will apply to commercial photographers too.
