Black Passport, Central Market of Grozny, Chechnya, August 1996

Stanley Greene, a former member of the revolutionary African-American group The Black Panthers, was born in New York in 1949. His interest in photography started after his encounter with W. Eugene Smith, a pioneer of photojournalism – incidentally, Greene received the prestigious grant that bears the name of his first mentor in 2004 for his work in Chechnya.> Read more

His career as a war photographer truly launched in 1989, when he immortalized the fall of the Berlin Wall with a photograph entitled Kisses to All, Berlin Wall. Two years later, he joined the French agency VU'.

When covering the attempted coup d'état against Boris Eltsine in 1993, he feared for his life while jailed in Moscow's White House. Greene then completed numerous reportages in some of the world's most dangerous regions: Kashmir, Haut-Karabakh, Lebanon, Iraq, Somalia and Rwanda. In 2005, he went to Louisiana to photograph the Katrina devastation from Houston to New Orleans.

In 2007, he contributed to the creation of the Noor agency, which seeks to follow a pure and contemporary editorial line and promote long-form photo essays. Stanley Greene has received several awards throughout his career, including the Katrina Media Fellowship, the prix International Planète Albert Kahn (PIPAK), and five World Press Photos.
