ABSTRACT
This article presents the photographer Stanley Greene and his photo book on the war in Chechnya. For the past 10 years he has observed the war in Chechnya, and the evidence--now on display in Paris--is among the most disturbing in the annals of war photography. Greene's work is a grim record of a conflict deeply rooted in Soviet history. More than 300,000 of Chechnya's 1 million people have died since the war began, and Greene's images are unabashedly from the Chechen point of view. Greene made his name when the Berlin wall came down in 1989. Greene began to seek out the world's hot spots. The next year he went to Chechnya. "After that, I went straight to the essentials--the Leicas--and photographed as much as possible with the hope the film would get out."
