After the second and the fourth TEDxBG editions in 2011 and 2013, I was one of the photographers of this year’s fifth conference again 🙂 As always, it’s a (long) day of great people, inspirational ideas, beautiful music and a good bit of fun.
The auditorium awaits.
What a stage this year!
Clever little signs. You need those with 1000+ people roaming around 😉
People were excited despite the early hour on a Sunday…
… and were queuing up outside the doors.
From the operations “room” the show was ready to start. For some reason this is my favorite shot of the day.
Imagine how the speakers feel when the clock starts ticking down and the crowd is silently looking at your every step… a bit daunting 🙂
The organizers. Good job guys!
Our host was quite entertaining, per usual.
Ok, the talks are starting.
A poignant question indeed…
The super useful bags people get every year.
One of the smaller halls had this guy play classical music for the people, great idea.
The dark void of the main stage can be scary.
This is how things looked from up top… full house!
Some lecturers had flown from abroad for this.
A good bit of dark comedy intertwined with some serious food for thought in this talk.
People seemed to be enjoying themselves… or were just mental 😉
Soup in the break, made by some of the participants on the previous day. Delicious 🙂
You can’t have a TED conference without music.
Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings as performed by the philharmonic orchestra… just beautiful.
Stealing a moment.
As far as responses go, this is excellent 🙂
It’s a long day indeed, some just can’t handle it all 😉
An important talk about food waste.
Not sure what this was about (bees & pollination?), but loved the image.
TED, always better with friends around 😉
Well, onto next year then 🙂
Wow! I agree with you on the scary void of darkness up on stage. How DID you wind up photographing the event? Now I’m intrigued.
The organizers are friends of mine, I’ve been helping them out for some time 🙂
Super. I hope to be so lucky.
