Sebastião Salgado
“Kuwait: A Desert on Fire”

La Photographie Galerie presents a stunning series of images by acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado depicting the burning Kuwaiti oil fields of the 1991 Gulf War.

— “It felt as if the end were nigh. With the sun obliterated by dark smoke, a Dantean landscape stretched as far as the eye could see. The horizon itself was marked by torches of fire, where burning oil leapt from the lifeless desert.” — Sebastião Salgado

The “Kuwait: A Desert on Fire” exhibition presents thirty photographs of the burning oil fields. These striking visual images were taken by Sebastião Salgado after the Gulf War. They show the ravaged landscapes in which oxygen was beginning to run out, a blackened desert and, most striking of all, the superhuman efforts of the oil-soaked Canadian firefighters. This portfolio is both a tribute to their courage in the face of adversity and a photo reportage on the environmental and economic catastrophe sparked by the conflict.
