R.I.P Stanley Greene

my photo albums unfortunately without autograph… I had no guts to ask… had occasion twice… at TPW in Italy and in Perpignan. I never met more passionate photographer, so dedicated to his work. He would scream and get furious if he felt someone didn’t take the assignment seriously. I am proud he was my teacher and I have learned so much from him. He will be missed. R. I. P Stanley… / Open Wound cover photo… will always be the most powerful photo I have ever seen.

Saudi Aramco World posted yesterday my photo on it’s instagram.

Photographer Aga Luczakowska, @aluczakowska, captured this moment as girls prepared their traditional dresses to dance in a Tatar folk group in Bialystok, Poland, published in “Poland’s New Tatar Trail,” May/June 2014. Tatars in Poland are the survivors of centuries of wars and, most recently, nearly a century of communist political repression of religion, traditions and language. Yet, historic identities endure, and the region in far eastern Poland is receiving new attention for its cultural riches. #photography #Poland

I am back from 25th W:O:A anniversary… the festival was much better than my expectations. It was my first time but for sure not the last one.

It’s too big expense to go every year (anyway, all the tickets for next year were sold in 12 hours), but I hope to be there again in two years.
