This photograph, along with 27 other images, form Salgado’s early body of work during which he ventured into the dangerous depths of Brazil’s Serra Pelada gold mine. Located in Pará, 430 kilometres south of the mouth of the Amazon River, Serra Pelada was infamous for its vast numbers of local miners often working under brutal and perilous conditions.
