How photography connects us

The photo director for National Geographic, David Griffin knows the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we all use photos to tell our stories.

Let’s just start by looking at some great photographs. This is an icon of National Geographic, an Afghan refugee taken by Steve McCurry. But the Harvard Lampoon is about to come out with a parody of National Geographic,and I shudder to think what they’re going to do to this photograph. Oh, the wrath of Photoshop.

Here’s a photograph shot in moonlight, something that digital photography has made a big difference for. It was with the elephants that this story pivoted.

What is photography really?

Fusce bibendum, velit maximus auctor viverra, dolor nunc interdum arcu, a placerat risus tellus quis mi. Maecenas facilisis magna sit amet felis fringilla, non facilisis nunc placerat. Nullam arcu risus, accumsan a magna vel, euismod pharetra justo. Aenean ac tincidunt nulla. Donec fringilla nibh mi, non porta urna malesuada eu. Nam ultrices sapien a ante cursus, quis porttitor massa volutpat.
