Ask photojournalists to name a peer they admire, and Sebastião Salgado’s name is sure to crop up. The Brazilian is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. [ted_talkteaser id=1729]As he describes in the talk he gave at TED2013, his attention to detail and his personal attachment to his subjects caused health problems that nearly killed him.

Thankfully, he didn’t give up. His most recent project is Genesis, which he describes as “my love letter to the planet” and for which he spent eight years traveling the world to photograph humans, animals and nature in their native glory. (To read more details about Salgado’s process, see this rather lovely Q&A with TED photographer Ryan Lash.) The resulting black-and-white…

Man of Style: Mr. David Gandy

if only he were vegan…. then he would be a perfect fantasy boyfriend :-)

David is one of those guys that looks great in anything . . . a tee shirt & jeans or a jacket & tie . . . doesn’t matter, he wears everything with confidence.

There is nothing trendy about his personal style — it’s good taste mixed with a casual attitude. He usually arrives on set in jeans, a tee shirt (with the neck stretched a bit), a worn leather jacket or tweed blazer, a great watch & proper leather shoes.
