Greene became known for his documentation on the Chechen war, and has since receive five World Press Awards, among others. He is today a member of the NOOR Agency, and lives and works in Paris. His "Western Front" series about the juvenile, punk-rock scene in San Francisco, appeared in issue No. 2 of the M Magazine.

Afterwards, visitors will have the chance to ask the photographer questions about his work and enter into a dialogue with him. In order to offer the broadest overview possible of Greene’s portfolio, his "Flatliners" series about life on the streets of Oakland – a series produced within the framework of the "Facing Change – Documenting America" project – will also be exhibited.
