This TED Talk senior fellow has been photographing storms for five years. Her stunning images capture the clouds as they swell and scatter, and were inspired by her grandfather, who instilled in her the belief that everything in this world is interconnected.
Prominent engineer and tornado enthusiast, Tim Samaras was one of the best known storm chasers. Samaras’ passions for storms culminated in his design and construction of his own weather instruments that helped him gain scientific knowledge about the next big storm’s whereabouts. He was also an avid photographer and videographer, and captured brilliant storm chaser photography from within actual tornados, as well as images of convective storms and lightning. Unfortunately both Samaras and his son, Paul, passed away last year in pursuit of these storms.
