With this post, the first in a series of past TEDxGreenville presenter updates, we hope to answer questions that we’ve asked a lot and have heard from many of you, So, they shared their idea/performance, what then? What have they been up to? Where are they now?
We begin with Ian Curcio, who many of you may have seen at the 2012 and 2013 events as one of our two official photographers. What you may not know is that Ian was one of the presenters at the 2011 TEDxGreenville. He gave a talk which began in the morning and which ended the event by showing all of the photos of attendees that he’d photographed that day.
So, what’s he been up to? Where is he now? Ian married Ana Parra (on the TEDxGreenville team), honeymooned in Paris and ended up with one of his photos appearing in Tempus magazine, collaborated on the Faces project with Greenville Forward to document everyday people in the city of Greenville and was awarded a Bub (Expecting Goodness Film Festival) for Cinematography with his film-making contribution to “Reagan In Kabul”. He’s also opened a studio, landed a photo on the cover of a national publication, gotten one of his photos in The New York Times and worked as director of photography for a Mez media video project about NYC & DC. Did I mention the photo in The New York Times?
There’s no moss gathering under this creative guy!
This is Ian’s 2011 talk, Combining Great Ideas & Technique
