Artist Janne Willems #tedxgroningen spends almost every day doing the exact same thing. But don窶冲 pity her; instead, envy her instead for her view into people窶冱 hearts and souls. She goes up to strangers, hands them a blank postcard, and asks them to draw her a beautiful moment from their past week. Their moment doesn窶冲 need to be pretty or perfect, Willems says; it doesn窶冲 even need to be happy 窶 it just has to be 窶彙eautiful,窶 whatever that word means to them. Read more on the ideas blog and be sure to watch Janne窶冱 #tedx talk. Link in our bio!

What is color?
窶弩hat if green could be purple and purple could be red, and red could be orange, and orange could be窶ヲ窶 photographer Sanne de Wilde says during her @tedxamsterdam talk. 窶廬n a world without color, you smell; you feel;you know. Can you dream in color when you live in black and white? What would you miss the most?窶
De Wilde spent a month on the islands of Pingelap and Pohnpei, part of the Federated States of Micronesia, where as much as ten percent of the population are completely color blind, a condition known as #achromatopsia .
Last year, Kehrer published a book of de Wilde窶冱 photographs about the hereditary condition titled, The Island of the Colorblind. The book contains digital images converted to black and white, as well as infrared photographs. De Wilde also asked people with achromatopsia to color some of her black and white images.
窶廚olor is just a word to those who cannot see it,窶 says de Wilde. 窶弩e bring ideas to life, we give ideas meaning by the words we use. This is the power of words. But what if color is just a word?窶
窶弩hat窶冱 wrong with a purple sun? Let窶冱 open up to new possibilities, new perspectives, new ways of seeing. Why not?窶 Link to de Wilde窶冱 talk can be found in the link in our bio.  http://bit.ly/2AQWfDw  #tedx #tedxamsterdam #photography #infrared #colorblind @noorimages @sanne_de_wilde 沒キ Sanne de Wilde/NOOR

You might not know photographer Ryan Pfluger, but chances are you窶况e seen some of his photographs.
During his #tedxpasadena talk, Pfluger speaks about how he discovered photography and how it then became a means for therapy and connection.
When speaking about his craft, Pfluger emphasizes, 窶廣ll I knew was that I didn窶冲 want anyone that came into my life to ever feel like they were not seen窶ヲI wanted everyone that I interacted with to not only feel special but also that their stories could be heard.窶
