Posted on: December 11, 2008

act to improve the lot of others, or

strike out against injustice,

he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.

 

2007 TED Prize Winner – James Nachtwey.

James Nachtwey talks about his decades as a photojournalist. A slideshow of his photos, beginning in 1981 in Northern Ireland, reveals two parallel themes in his work.

First, as he says: “The frontlines of contemporary wars are right where people live.” Street violence, famine, disease: he has photographed all these modern WMDs.

Second, when a photo catches the world’s attention, it can truly drive action and change.

In his TED wish, he asks for help gaining access to a story that needs to be told, and developing a new, digital way to show these photos to the world.

TED ideas worth spreading.
