Think Tank has launched a new free video series all about stories behind photos.
The video series is called 'About a Photograph', and it features some of the world's leading photographers recounting the stories behind the images that captured global attention.
Narrated by the actual photographers who took the photos, each short video focuses on the forces that led up to that perfect moment in time when subject, story, setting, equipment, and photographer converged.
The first video in the series features Agence France-Presse photographer Saul Loeb. In it he narrates the events that led him to capturing the iconic 'Presidential Hug' image from the 2012 United States presidential campaign. His photo captures a Florida pizza shop owner lifting and bear-hugging a surprised President Obama. At that moment Loeb felt, "This could end up being the defining photo of the campaign season."
The video series will feature current as well as classic and historic photographs that span a range of styles, including documentary/photojournalistic, fine art, nature/environment, sports, and politics.
A new video is released every three weeks. For more information and to view the first video, visit the Think Tank blog
