Photographing the hidden story: Ryan Lobo on TED.com

Posted by: Shanna Carpenter

Ryan Lobo has traveled the world, taking photographs that tell stories of unusual human lives. In this haunting talk, he reframes controversial subjects with empathy, so that we see the pain of a Liberian war criminal, the quiet strength of UN women peacekeepers and the perseverance of Delhi’s underappreciated firefighters. (Recorded at TEDIndia, November 2009, Mysore, India. Duration: 11:21)
