The only true photojournalism is one in which the involvement continues.– Gilles Peress\

Born(December 29, 1946)  in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Gilles Peress made his first photographic series in 1970 after attending the Institut d’Études Politiques (1966-68) and the Université de Vincennes (1968-71). By 1971, he had established himself as a freelance photographer, publishing work in Du, the London Sunday Times, The New York Times Magazine, Photo, and other periodicals.

Gilles Peress’s photography demonstrates his uncommon ability to navigate and communicate the atmosphere and urgency of volatile political environments. While his early work identified him as a “concerned photographer,” his more recent work suggests an increasing concern with form and a more obvious sense of subjectivity. In this respect, Peress’s photographs echo the photojournalism of Henri Cartier-Bresson,
