Louie Schwartzberg: Hidden miracles of the natural world

Published on Apr 9, 2014

We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled “Mysteries of the Unseen World,” which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.

HH:  Amazing - and it’s always been there for us to discovery.

Earthquake in Jakarta
Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN) — The 15 victims simply couldn’t outrun the searing debris that billowed out of Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung.
Plumes of ash had spewed more than a mile into the sky Saturday and descended in superheated clouds. Scalding ash up to 700 degrees in temperature raced down the slope in just two to three minutes.
By the end of several eruptions, at least 15 people had been killed, a government official told CNN. It was the first time Mount Sinabung’s volcanic output had resulted in deaths, the Jakarta Post reported.

Photographer Sebastiao Salgado is never one to do a project that is anything less than remarkable. His latest project called Genesis, exemplifies that work ethic and it is a truly profound body of work. 
Genesis takes us on an exhilarating journey to view the world from old perspectives. Shot in dramatic monochrome, Genesis tries to capture the world in way that it may have appeared long before it was touched by any kind of modernity.

"A TRUE CONSERVATIONIST IS A MAN WHO KNOWS THAT THE WORLD IS NOT GIVEN BY HIS FATHER BUT BORROWED FROM HIS CHILDREN” Audubon
“I had assumed that the Earth, the spirit of the Earth, noticed exceptions — those who want only to damage it and those who do not. But the Earth is wise. It has given itself into the keeping of all, and all are therefore accountable.” - Alice Walker
