This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Mark Gee is an award-winning photographer and digital visual effects artist who has worked on many high profile and Oscar award-winning feature films. In this poignant and beautiful talk, he describes the extraordinary experiences that have sprung from his quest to photographically capture the night sky.
While his photographic images portray a wide variety of subjects, in the past few years he has focused on astrophotography in particular. Mark was short-listed for 2012 Astronomy Photographer of the Year, was a finalist in the 2012 World Open of Photography, and took 4th place in the 2014 International Earth and Sky Photo Competition. His recent short film, ‘Full Moon Silhouettes,‘ went viral and has been broadcast all over the world by the likes of CNN, The BBC, NASA and various other mainstream media. In 2013, Mark won the prestigious Astronomy Photographer of the Year overall award, as well as winning both the Earth and Space category and the People and Space category, which had never been done before in the competition’s history.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
