STANLEY GREENE »BLACK PASSPORT« – selected by GÖSTA FLEMMING, JH ENGSTRÖM and GUY TILLIM

Gösta Flemming: »A trustworthy account on being a “war photographer”. Photography that is nervy, emotional, and kicks; close to the edge. The personal approach and flash-backs raise many questions and provide many answers. “War, what is it good for …” Design, layout and roughness of typography and printing are in accord with the subject and the story; a small minus for the cover material, which bends.«

JH Engström: »The book Stanley Green has made is the one I have been waiting for for a long time. Here, he has broken his silence and formulated the doubts and self-examination of the heroized war-photographer.It is a mystery to me that a book like this has not been made sooner.«

Guy Tillim: »Greene’s accounts of his travels in hard places and how he tries to patch together his life as a result of his stunning curiosity and ardor, leads nowhere and raises more questions than answers. Which is how it should be. The uncertainties he faces, emotional and physical, are well described by his ‘BLACK PASSPORT’, and Teun van der Heijden quotes Lee Miller in his text in considering his Greene’s photographs and their veracity: ” … anything you hear about me is probably true … true to life — true to my life!”«
