sorry. correction: i got my copy from Kino, as those in Borders are quite tattered and not in good condition.
maybe due to el cheapos like me who likes to read for free....hehe
i think Kino is slightly cheaper for this book. But not too sure if they still carry it. If u do buy, be sure to check that the separate booklet for the captions to the photos is present. There's a separate booklet which captions and tells the story behind each of the types of manual labour depicted in the book.

Sebastio Salgado is featured in the latest issue of B&W (April 2003). I prefer one of his other books (cannot remember the the exact name... i think it was Children: Refugees and Migrants
) to Workers. Felt that the photographs were much more powerful.

Re: Book Recommendation
Bought the book while in UK. It's definitely worth the money to keep it. A powerful book with some of the world greatest sadness captured.

Agreed on this one. Sad. No money, misery. Got too much money, also misery. Sigh, give me your money.
