Photography – OSVALDO SALAS

March 18, 2008 by: admin

This is almost certainly the last time there will be a major sale of photos that were taken, hand-printed & signed by Osvaldo Salas. During the last twenty years of his life, because of a shortage of photographic materials in Cuba, he usually printed and signed photos only when they had been ordered and when the would-be purchaser arrived in Havana, as I did, with boxes of photographic paper.

OSVALDO SALAS (1914-1992) is widely recognized as having been one of the world’s great press photographers. His international fame came not just from the quality of his work but also because he was so often in the right place at the right time.

He received many awards, diplomas and honors for his photography, including being acclaimed, in 1983, an International Master of Photography by the International Press Association.
