TED Talks website is one of my favourite places on the web. I watch their videos every week and get incredibly inspired every time.

There are literally tens of talented photographers among TED Speakers. Some of them are professional and some are amateurs like us. But their stories are amazing. Some are touching, some are unbelievable, some are inspiring. All of them are worth watching.

This is a round up of my favourite 5 TED Photography talks I think you should all watch. I hope you'll get as inspired as I got.
