photojournalism and MediaStorm | inspiration

This is totally unrelated to weddings, but I feel like it's well worth sharing anyways.  We all need to find inspiration from various sources, people, or events that speak to us.  For me, photojournalism is a huge inspiration for me, and a challenge and aspiration.  There's so much going on in our world that we're simply unaware of, whether unintentionally or otherwise.  We live in an amazing age for sharing information across the globe.

MediaStorm isn't a particularly new company/initiative, so some of you might have heard of them.  But for the rest of y'all, I just wanted to put them in my own tiny limelight.

On top of being technically excellent in their combination of stills, video, and audio, the impact of their projects is brutally powerful.  It's awesome seeing companies and individuals who are pushing the boundaries of media and journalism, and helping shape how we see the rest of the world.  Glad there are eye openers like these out there.

All the projects are worth watching, but these two really struck me.  The "Rape of a Nation" project by Marcus Bleasdale is incredible.

Awesome post Ryan! I just watched both videos, and they really do open your eyes to all the things that go on in our world...all the things that most of us seem to forget about from day to day. Thanks for the reminder!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
