SUMMARY:

 Considering the relevance of the documentary work developed by photographer Sebastião Salgado and his relationship with the African continent throughout his career of more than 40 years, this research proposes a reading and analysis of the Exodus (2000) and Genesis (2013) photobooks. and seek elements and subsidies that lead us to understand how the construction of visual narratives about Africa takes place. We verified, from the discursive constructions or the photographic narratives, how the African continent was presented in each of the publications, considering that the photographer himself takes into account, in the elaboration of his books, the existence of an informative photographic language, which is constructed from the guiding lines that would be the story that the photographs tell and their importance in the set or context in which they are edited and published. For this verification, the images included in each of the narratives presented by Sebastião Salgado were compared, as well as examples of other works carried out by African photographers, namely, the Nigerian Akintude Akinleye and the South Africans Kevin Carter, Greg Marinovich, João Silva and Ken Oosterbroek. For the part of the research related to the book object, we work with the concepts of curation and editing and how these actions, interconnected, also influence the discursive constructions of these narratives that are presented to us. Here, we place the photographic technique in dialogue with the editing techniques and tools, approached to understand the construction of narratives in the book object. When we come to the imaginary construction of the African continent, we put Charaudeau's concepts of imaginary (Duran) and discursive imaginary into dialogue. We also use, in dialogue, the categories solidarity, affection, discursive beauty and event. These two lines led us to find the possibilities of reading these works and how they participate in the construction of circulating imaginaries about Africa, which, in the end, we realize do not differ from other narratives about that continent and which normally reach us in products informational or in novels and films.
