black passport

Stanley Greene


“I think you can only keep positive for eight years. If you stay at it longer than that, you turn. And not into a beautiful butterfly.” Black Passport is the biography of war photographer Stanley Greene, compiled out of hours of interviews by Teun van der Heijden. It shows Stanley’s war images alternated with private images. The viewer gets to know Stanley’s friends, his wife (later ex-wife), his female friends and his colleagues. Like Stanley himself, the viewer experiences being tossed to and from between the safe western life and the horrors of wars elsewhere. What effect does this work – the confrontation with horrors – have on his character? How does it influence his relationships, his loved ones and friends?
