The TED Prize

May 1st, 2007

Leading conflict photographer James Nachtwey was one of three to win this year’s TED Prize which was created as a way of taking the inspiration, ideas and resources that are generated at TED and use them to make a difference in the world.

In a video of his acceptance speech Nachtwey states, “Every story does not have to sell something. There’s also a time to give….I am a witness and I want my testimony to be honest and uncensored. I also want it to be powerful and eloquent and to do as much justice as possible to the experience of the people I’m photographing.”

Like many other photojournalists, I am inspired by Nachtwey and his work. Download the 20 minute mp4 video file of his speech to learn more of his work. Note: video contains graphic images of war.
