reporting a pandemic

This evening at the National Theatre, London, Demos and TED collaborated to help grant the TEDPrize wish of photographer James Nachtwey.

He wanted to brake a story globally, the story of extremely drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB).

Projected upon the National Theatre were these photographs:

It was cold out there on the southbank, and the photographs are powerful. There is a project now, to see if a story can be broken and communicated across the globe via both traditional and new media. It will be interesting to see if in this image saturated online world a story can still be told by the carefully constructed work of a photojournalist.
