Short biography
Stanley Greene was born in New York in 1949, and as a teenager was a member of the Black Panthers and an anti-Vietnam War activist. Greene studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and at the Image Works in Cambridge, Massachusetts. An encounter with W. Eugene Smith turned his energies to photojournalism. Greene began photographing for magazines and worked as temporary staff photographer for the New York Newsday. In 1986, he moved to Paris and by chance, he was on hand to record the fall of the Berlin Wall, which made him a much-sought-after photojournalist. Greene has photographed wars and poverty in Africa, the former Soviet Union, Central America, Asia and the Middle East. He made a great impression with the photo book Open Wound: Chechnya 1994-2003, published by Trolley. Greene won the W. Eugene Smith Award in 2004 and continued to cover important world events, until his death on May 19, 2017.
