How Photography Connects Us

988669_10152882434160652_1893030052_nWelcome to another Tuesday with TED. Today we have photojournalist David Griffin who understands the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we can use photos to tell compelling stories.

David Griffin has one of the world’s true dream jobs: he’s the Director of Photography for National Geographic. He works with photo editors and photographers to set the magazine’s visual direction–which in turn raises the bar for photographers around the world. Griffin offers an intriguing look into the magazine’s creative process and talks about how the magazine uses its extraordinary photos to tell emotional and moving stories.

Take a few minutes to watch this talk. The photographs are incredible!

What did you think of Griffin’s talk? Do you agree that photography can be used as an effective tool for confronting the challenges facing our world?

How might you use images to enhance your creativity and your storytelling?

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
