A short sketch of a proposed full-length documentary film about the late Stanley Greene–artist, poet and renowned photojournalist. A legendary figure among war photographers, Greene was one of the few African-Americans to cover every major world conflict for over 30 years.
Acclaimed images he created in Iraq, Syria, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Rwanda and Serbia, as well as in post-Katrina New Orleans, are testament to his commitment and belief that photography is a way of making sense of the world. In doing so, it can help change it for the better.
