TED Taks-Sebastião Salgado: The silent drama of photography
Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay. Here, 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.
Polaroid’s 20x24 cameras, built in the late 70s and named for the dimensions of their snapshots—20 by 24 inches, are the largest living Polaroid cameras in the world. (There was once an even bigger one with 40x80 snapshots but the film has run out.) Five of these 20x24 cameras still exist, and one resides in New York City’s 20x24 Studio. The Studio’s director, artist John Reuter, demonstrated the 235-pound camera, and Christopher Bonanos, author of Instant: The Story of Polaroid, explained how this camera fits into Polaroid’s history.
