Feel good Sunday: The power of an image — and the mind behind it
In his TED Talk titled “The Power of an Image and the Mind Behind It,” Misan Harriman, a self-taught photographer, shares his inspiring journey and the impact of images on our lives. As a neurodivergent child, he found solace and inspiration in the vast world of the internet, which he describes as an “endless library of the extraordinary.”
Harriman’s photography career has taken him on a remarkable path, from capturing the essence of significant civil rights movements to breaking barriers as the first Black man to shoot a cover for British Vogue. His work serves as a testament to the transformative power of images and their ability to evoke emotions, challenge societal norms, and spark conversations.
Through his talk, Harriman emphasizes that each person has the potential to contribute to creating a better world. By harnessing their unique talents and passions, individuals can make a difference and inspire positive change. Harriman’s story serves as a reminder that no matter our background or circumstances, we all possess the ability to create a meaningful impact in our communities and beyond.
