After six years of trying, having previously been stopped by Brazilian military authorities, Sebastiao Salgado visited Serra Pelada in Autumn 1986 to document the gold rush on the border of the Amazonian rainforest. The site's fame was arguably elevated by a number of photographs taken by Salgado and one other photographer. This example demonstrates clearly the appalling working conditions of over 50,000 diggers in one of the world's largest open-air gold mines at the time.
