TEDx Talk, How Photography Led to Schools for Girls, Cleveland State University, October of 2014




This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Enacting social change through photography.
For the past two decades, photography has been Halim Ina's passion and true purpose. A formally trained dentist in the specialty of prosthodontics, Ina's passion for photography has guided him to visit over a dozen countries, photographing tens of thousands of people with over 160,000 negatives exposed. This past summer, two local exhibitions of these images helped raise awareness and then fully support six schools for girls in India.
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.
