Sebastião Salgado - Kuwait, a Desert on Fire - Taschen - In the English language - 2016 - 208 pp. - Hardcover with dust jacket - 32 x 30 cm.

Desert in flames.
Sebastião Salgado documents the Kuwaiti oil fields that were set on fire.

When the USA-lead coalition ousted the Iraqi troops from Kuwait in January and February 1991, the soldiers of Saddam Hussain started an inferno. They lit enormous fires at approx. seven hundred oil wells and at an undetermined number of low-lying, oil-filled areas, spreading black clouds over the region and bringing thousands of tons of nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

While desperate attempts were made to contain the fire and to extinguish it, Sebastião Salgado travelled to Kuwait to experience the crisis close-up. The circumstances were unbearable. The heat was so intense that Salgado’s smallest lens deformed. Salgado stayed close to the firefighters and recorded, with his characteristic sensitivity for both human and environmental consequences, this ‘enormous theatre the size of the planet’.

It will be securely packaged and shipped with track & trace.
