PARIS— Stan­ley Greene, an award-win­ning Amer­i­can photographer of con­flict, dis­as­ters and hu­man­i­tar­ian crises across the globe, died Fri­day in Paris. He was 68.

Greene had been ill for a long time, said Cle­ment Sac­co­mani, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the NOOR photo agency.

Born in­NewYork on Feb. 14, 1949, Greene doc­u­mented San Fran­cisco’s punk scene in the 1970s and 8`0s, be­fore mov­ing to Paris in 1986. He cov­ered events across the globe and, from 1994 to 2001, ex­ten­sively cov­ered the con­flict in Chech­nya.

“Stan­ley spent his life doc­u­ment­ing the strife of hu­man­ity, de­nounc­ing the hor­rors from Dar­fur to Chech­nyaandIraq. His pas­sion for photography and peo­ple was sec­ond to none. When not in the field, Stan­ley­would­spend­hours shar­ing his pas­sion with col­leagues and stu­dents alike, wear­ing his trade­mark leather jacket, skull rings and round spec­ta­cles,” said Jerome De­lay, Africa Chief Photographer forTheAs­so­ci­ated Press. “We have just lost one of the pil­lars of mod­ern photography, an eye­wit­ness, a con­fi­dant, an ex­cep­tional hu­man be­ing.”
