I wanted to share a very inspiring video I saw today. It made me think differently about the context of images. Do we as photographers provide a single story in our work? We often have our own style as photographers, but are we also getting locked in by our preconceptions and the story that we know? Check out this awesome video that was on TED. Writer Chimamanda Adichie gives a fascinating speech about the danger of a single story. I now think about photography a bit differently. Are we furthering a story of a people in our work? Do we really examine our subjects and show their stories…or are we just showing our own story of them.

James Nachtwey : Extremely Drug Resistant TB

James Nachtwey recently unveiled his TED Prize project. His work focused on Extremely Drug Resistant Tuberculosis around the world. There is nothing I can say that will convey the message any better. Just take a few minutes and check out this video. (A particularly thought-provoking photo is on the “Photographs Page” of his website. Click to go to the second page of images, and look at the third one down on the first column. Its image #37 of 69.)

Be thankful everyday. Our Western issues seem relatively trivial in comparison.
