Sebastião Salgado may be a photographer that you may not have heard of. Getting a masters in Economics and then discovering Photography after picking up a camera, he immediately changed careers. His social images are iconic in ways that will make you delve deeper into his photos like those by American Dorothea Lange. In this TED talk, 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.
