This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. She talks about how pictures can be more powerful than words, but a photograph without context is dangerous as it only requires shifting the angle. People don't deconstruct photographs anymore, but the people are dependent on the images around them to understand the world and their part in it. She calls for the audience to not just read articles that people have posted online and wait for the photographs to come to them.

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)
