Conversation with photographer Sebastião Salgado

Sebastião Salgado, author of memorable images that portrait the reality of labor, migrations, landless farmers and daily life in all continents, is one of the most accomplished Brazilian photographers. And one of the very few that really made it internationally.

In this 2005 event at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, he presents some of his best pictures  and discusses the social and political role of photography. His interview, that takes a while to really take off, lasts 1h30 and is conducted by adjunct professor Ken Light and Photo Critic and Curator Fred Ritchin.
