Scent of a dream: Sebastião Salgado
Started in 2002, when Sebastião Salgado and illy met, Scent of a dream is a journey through coffee growing countries, based on a shared common value: sustainable development, the fundamental principal by which the Trieste-based company is able to maintain its supreme quality.
Throughout his career, Salgado has managed to use his black and white pictures to celebrate the daily lives of those on the plantations, and the beauty of the terroir from which the precious bean is grown and harvested. The sequence of his images was constructed, shot by shot, in ten of the coffee producing countries.
Scent of a dream is also a book, curated by Lelia Wanick Salgado, published by Contrasto in Italy and sold inside the Coffee Cluster, where the images of places, people and men that made it the greatest reportage ever produced on the world of coffee, are close to texts signed by Andrea Illy, Luis Sepulveda, Angela Vettese and of course, Sebastião Salgado.
The incredible Scent of a Dream images, besides Expo Milan 2015, will be presented to the public at large through an extensive tour that will touch, in 2015, Venice – at Fondazione Bevilacqua la Masa - to be then continued, in the upcoming three years, throughout United States and Asia.
