Sebastiao Salgado

In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.

In this segment, visit the exhibition Then and Now at the David Brower Center in Berkeley featuring the work by acclaimed photographer SebastiĆ£o Salgado. Salgado is known for images that reveal the human condition — from laborers in Latin America to refugees from war and famine in Africa and elsewhere. In the tradition of social documentary photography, he often makes his work available to social change organizations, such as Doctors without Borders, Amnesty International, and UNICEF.
