Thanks for the pointer Steve. Salgados work is as great as ever, even though some here may dispute his place in the higher echelons of photography. I remember with sadness the days of my schoolhood in the early 50's when many of my friends were struck down by a polio epedemic here in the UK, and the fear that my mother had that I and others would catch it. We were immunised and I can still remember as clear as day going to the clinic for the injections, and being very afraid. I guess I was about 7 at the time. Thank God it is now a rarity here now and anything that can be done to eradicate it worldwide must be a good thing.
