A tribute to a Master
Sebastiao Salgado is one of the Masters of Photography, and an inspiration for my own meager pursuits. His words--to give hope by capturing what is good and decent and pristine about this planet of ours--resonates in my work and my own worldview. With these photos, I hope to bring the beauty of what I have seen into my own life, to experience the same sense of peace and wonder that I felt as I captured these images. The photos in my portfolio are meant to inspire, to give hope. I hope you enjoy them.
Thanks Marie. This wide expanse of land is actually a vineyard in the hilltop town of Montalcino in Tuscany, famous for its Brunello di Montalcino wine. The villa that I was visiting when I captured this image is reputedly the same villa where Leonardo da Vinci painted the portrait of La Giocanda, i.e., Mona Lisa. And this vista is reputedly the same background in that famous painting, 500 years later. Cheers, and hopefully you and your family are keeping yourselves warm.
This is breathtaking and unusual, very serene and peacful. I am curious what the perfectly lined plot holds. What type of small
tree or plant is so perfectly lined and symmetrical? Is there a name for this place.
Nice website Keith!
