Stanley Greene and Teun van der Heijden

In 2009 photographer Stanley Greene and graphic designer Teun van der Heijden made Black Passport, a photobook with autobiographical elements on the life of Greene as a photojournalist. The book has become a classic example of a successful collaboration between a headstrong photographer and a persistent designer at producing a photobook as a personal document. At DDK in Paris Greene and Van der Heijden will talk about Greens new book: The Western Front.

Stanley Greene (USA, 1949) started his career as a painter, but changed his focus fast to photography. In the beginning he was busy in the fashion world, and in 1989 he switched completely to photojournalism, visiting many war torn countries like Chechnya, Iraq and Chad. Greene’s work has been rewarded five times with prizes at Wold Press Photo. He is one of the founding members of the agency NOOR Images.

Teun van der Heijden (Netherlands, 1962) studied design at The Academy of Art and Design (AKV) St. Joost in Breda. During the last decade he developed himself as a specialized designer of photobooks: not only the annual publications of World Press Photo, but moreover books of photographers like Donald Weber, Marcus Bleasdale, Kadir van Lohuizen, Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski and Monique Stauder.
