The Island of the Color Blind | Sanne de Wilde | TEDx Amsterdam

When Sanne de Wilde visited the island of Pingelap, where an unusually high number of inhabitants are color blind, she immediately became part of the family. Along the way, she discovered that being color blind can open up a whole new perspective on how we interact with each other and the ways we are influenced by words and colors. In this talk, Sanne explores the ways color blindness can lead to us seeing more, creating a unified and wholesome community. Belgian photographer Sanne De Wilde (Antwerp, 1987) completed her bachelor degree at Konstfack, Stockholm (SE) and graduated as Master in the Fine Arts at KASK in Ghent (BE) with great honours in 2012. Her work has been rewarded with an impressive amount of awards and prizes and has been internationally published (The Guardian, New Yorker, Vogue) and exhibited (Tribeca Film Festival, Circulations, IDFA). Since 2013 De Wilde is working as a photographer for Amsterdam-based newspaper and magazine, De Volkskrant. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
