Video Interview with Stanley Greene (2004)
Stanley Greene (United States, 1949) got his teeth into the Chechen conflict like no other Western photo journalist, refusing to let the subject go. This commitment led to his impressive Open Wound, Chechnya 1994-2003, published by Trolleybooks in London. The video interview that filmmaker Stephen Bell did on the occasion of its release combines Greene's emotional testimony with the often hair-raising images of repression and Russian aggression toward the rebellious republic.
Stanley Greene (United States, 1949) studied photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York and the San Francisco Art Institute. In addition to Chechnya he has been active in Nagorno Karabach, Iraq, Somalia, Croatia, Kashmir and Lebanon. He went to Rwanda to record the consequences of the genocide, and photographed the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans, a series which was seen in the Noorderlicht Photogallery in 2006. He has been associated with the Noor photo agency since 2008.
