24/365 "In Day 365" SebastiÃ£o Salgado #1 (IN 365 Series)
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

SebastiÃ£o Salgado the Brazilian Photographer and his book Workers
Today I am once again addressing the arts, this time photography with my favorite photographer
SebastiÃ£o Salgado, the Brazilian photographer who likes to photograph visual archaeology of a time that history knows as the Industrial Revolution, a time when men and women at work with their hands proved the central axis of the world. In his book he portrays how the planet remains divided, the first world in a crisis of excess, the third world in a crisis of need, and, at the end of the century, the second world _that built on socialism_in ruins.
To me, SebastiÃ£o Salgado has achieved the most incredibly true photographs of the opposed, who work for almost nothing to let the richer society just get richer.
I have tried to photograph some of the photos from his book and I hope that these whet your appetite to want to see more of his excellent work which is all black and white photography. Enjoy.
