This is the final extract from an interview with Teun van der Heijden, the designer of Stanley Greene's book, Black Passport.
There are many conflict photographers. What makes Stanley's photography really special?
"I see it this way. At one end of the spectrum there is someone like Martijn van de Griendt who I call a street photographer. Someone who always carries a small camera. Every moment is a photography moment. Then you have the archetypal conflict photographer. That is Kadir van Lohuizen. These are people who when they are in the Netherlands never have a camera in their hands. They research their topic and will only shoot when they are in the actual place. I have always recognized those two archetypes of photography.
