Black and blue: Portraits of the Gulf

Photographers Kris Krüg, James Duncan Davidson and Pinar Özger  traveled to the Gulf of Mexico to document the effects of the oil spill from plane, truck and boat. Their images will be shown at the TEDx conference on Monday, June 28, which will gather together a host of big brains to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences on the Gulf oil spill.

The stunning images these photographers brought back are vivid reminders of how beautiful the region is — and how much has been lost.
