Salembier was born in New York in 1947. He was awarded a degree in art history in 1970 with a thesis on Donatello's San Lorenzo pulpits. Following graduation he got a job at the New York Stock Exchange and after twenty years on Wall Street (years in which he was fortunate enough to have his picture taken by Avedon for an ad campaign) he resigned from his partnership at Credit Suisse First Boston. At age 42, he took his first photograph.
After having studied for two years at Lee Strasberg's Actor's Studio in New York and having taken courses at New York University, he discovered photography. He then enrolled at the ICP, International Centre of Photography. The atmosphere of this institute in which the instructors are great photographers and artistic interaction is encouraged, so drew Salembier in that he says "I felt drugged!" He also studied at Fine Art Printing with George Tiece. The slow maturation of his interest in photography resulted in a coherent and refined theory of photography. From his first monochrome cibachromes (from which he later eliminated color) shown at the Mark Humphery Gallery in 1998, the tangible approach to light and pictorial, rather than photographic, style are evident.
