A sensitive eye and an intimate relationship to his subjects are the signatures of Ed Kashi's work. His complex imagery has been recognized internationally for its compelling rendering of the human condition. This 2010 exhibition explored Kashi's dedication to documenting the social and political issues that define our times.
"I take on issues that stir my passions about the state of humanity and our world, and I deeply believe in the power of still images to change people's minds," he says. "I'm driven by this fact: that the work of photojournalists and documentary photographers can have a positive impact on the world. The access people give to their lives is precious as well as imperative for this important work to get done. Their openness brings with it a tremendous sense of responsibility to tell the truth but to also honor their stories."
