Ted videos: photographers

TED is a non-profit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. They held annually a conference where the world's most fascinating thinkers. artist, scientist, ect. are challenged to give a talk of their lives/work (in 18 minutes or less) and as well they have the award TED prize: which consist in:  “One Wish to Change the World.”.

Following I have made a compilation of videos of photographers who had the chance to show their vision of the world in such a important event.

Artist Chris Jordan show here an arresting view of what Western culture looks like. His supersized images picture some almost unimaginable statistics -- like the astonishing number of paper cups we use every single day.

Accepting his 2005 TED Prize, photographer Edward Burtynsky makes a wish: that his images -- stunning landscapes that document humanity's impact on the world -- help persuade millions to join a global conversation on sustainability.
