Leroy did not specify the cause of green’s death, however, mentioned that a photographer recently suffered a serious illness.
Stanley Greene was born in new York in 1949. In the 80s, the photographer was taking pictures of musicians for The Rolling Stone and models for Elle and Marie Claire. In the 90s green shifted entirely to military journalism.
Over the years he became a multiple winner of World Press Photo awards, removing the fall of the Berlin wall, the October coup in 1993 in Moscow, the Chechen war and other military conflicts in many countries of the world. Since 1986, green lived and worked in Paris. In February of this year, Greene came to a creative meeting in Saint Petersburg.
