James Nachtwey "Ted" Prize Tal

I thought I'd share something that I really enjoyed, ........

James Nachtwey is the "War Photographer". If you've seen his documentary with that title you know he is THE photojournalist. He recently won the Ted award and had a presentation.....

"Accepting his 2007 TED Prize, 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. (Recorded March 2007 in Monterey, CA. Duration: 23:41)

I recommend the high resolution version.....
