    Such an interesting TED talk. Thanks for sharing, Ben. (p.s. we love GOOD!)

    Salgado takes along on his journey to the depths of despair, revealing stark, disturbing images of man's self-destructive behavior and then lifts us up so that we can see what we are capable of accomplishing to save not only our planet, but ourselves. He is a truly remarkable human being and I am so grateful to you Ben, for sharing his story.

      thanks, John. he really is an incredible fellow. even the part about his work before photography is inspiring. I think his work is showing in LA now and I'm hoping to get to see it in person.

    So moving and a great arc from despair to hope. I love that he ends with repeating "we can."
