Black Passport, world-renowned conflict photographer Stanley Greene's autobiographical monograph-cum-scrapbook, offers an experience that is both exceptionally personal and ostensibly objective. Built around Greene's narrating monologue, the book's twenty-six short, non-sequential "scenes" are each illustrated by a portfolio of his work—either personal or professional—presenting a kaleidoscope of Greene's key life experiences. The results are startling and filmic, the message raw and direct.

The archetype of the war correspondent is overlain by an outsized, heroic mythos, to which Greene is no stranger. In Black Passport, he transports the viewer behind the news as he reflects upon his career oscillating between the relative safety of life in the West and the traumas of wars abroad. This glimpse at the polarities that have comprised Greene's life raises essential questions about the role of the photojournalist, as well as concerns about its repercussions.

Stanley Greene (born in New York, 1949) was a longtime member of the renowned photo agency Agence VU before founding Noor, of which he is part-owner. A recipient of the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography and numerous other awards, his work has been featured in Newsweek, New York Times Magazine, Stern, and Paris Match. Greene's book, Open Wound: Chechnya 1994–2003, was released in 2004 to critical acclaim. Greene is based in Brooklyn and Paris.
