As we near the 200th anniversary of the camera, we are nearing the demise of traditional film photography. In striking parallel, the window of opportunity is closing to document the Tales of American Culture that have collectively formed our nation. This project is both a tribute to these unique people and the luminous era of traditional film photography.
Over the past 30 years, Manarchy has ranked among the world's top photographers.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in on the West Coast (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, and TED GLOBAL is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos --or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos --sparks deep conversation.
