Photography – TED Talk – ‘The Silent Drama of Photography’ – Sebastião Salgado

Share

It’s time for another inspirational photographic TED talk. We feature ones that we feel our readers will particularly enjoy. This week this talk is entitled “The Silent Drama of Photography” and it’s by Sebastião Salgado.

“Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay. Here, he tells a deeply personal story of the craft that nearly killed him, and shows breathtaking images from his latest work, Genesis, which documents the world’s forgotten people and places”.  Source TED.

Between these two extremes, they unwound a beautiful through-line of how a couple goes from meeting to creating a life together.
