Center for Latin American Studies, UC Berkeley presents:

Tino Soriano with exhibit, “La Zafra—The Sugar Cane Harvest”

In La Zafra, on exhibit at the Center for Latin American Studies, photojournalist Tino Soriano focuses his lens on the plight of Haitians at work in the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic.

“The sugar with which we sweeten our lives also contains bitter ingredients: slavery, hunger, intolerable sanitary conditions and, above all, thousands of campesinos trapped in misery without the possibility of starting a new life.” — Tino Soriano

Join us for the photographer’s talk, followed by an opening reception.

Wednesday, January 26, 5:00 pm
CLAS Conference Room, 2334 Bowditch Street
