The Silent Drama of Photography

Génesis - Sebastião Salgado

This is an interesting story from TED about photography and what it evokes.

Economics PhD 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.
