Photography Videos

Here are a few of my favorite videos dealing with the world of photography.

Accepting his 2007 TED Prize, war photographer James Nachtwey shows his lifes work and asks TED to help him continue telling the story with innovative, exciting uses of news photography in the digital era.

The photo director for National Geographic, David Griffin knows the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we all use photos to tell our stories.

Taryn Simon exhibits her startling take on photography — to reveal worlds and people we would never see otherwise. She shares two projects: one documents otherworldly locations typically kept secret from the public, the other involves haunting portraits of men convicted for crimes they did not commit.

  1. What I love about pictures is that they don’t need to be “professional” to have an impact–as David Griffin said, they freeze significant moments. Some of my most cherished photos are the most candid, accidental things I have ever taken, but they bring me back to such happy moments.

    • James Natchway has seen and experienced a great deal in his career. He uses his camera as a “weapon” to evoke change through the power of the still image. He has become less prolific over the past 5 years but remains an inspiration to many documentary photographers.


  2. Your photographs are amazing. I can tell that you are very creative! Photography is so interesting because it can make us feel things. It is very similar to music. However, with photography we can see pictures of objects and places that we could only dream on seeing.
