Über diesen Titel
As photojournalists since the early 1980s, the Turnleys have covered most of the great conflicts of the past fifteen years, and have been published in the best-known newspapers and magazines. Very often, one of their photographs becomes the iconic representation of the event. This is a result of their spending extended periods in the regions they cover, getting to know the people and the way of life. During the three years David lived in South Africa, he showed apartheid as the prevailing system, its subsequent destruction, and the first elections of the new democratic state. Peter has pursued his interest in documenting the world's fourteen million refugees, and also photographed the fall of Communism in Russia and Eastern Europe. Together they photographed student dissidents in the months leading up to the Tiananmen Square massacre; their photographs of the massacre itself are among their most recognizable. Shining through all the photographs is the strength of individual character and hope against powerful social and political conflict.Review:
From a low-income mixed race neighborhood in their hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana, to the hotspots of the world made famous by news headlines--Beijing's Tiananmen Square, Israel's West Bank, Cape Town, Somalia, Bosnia, Chechnya--twin brothers David and Peter Turnley have focused their cameras with award-winning results. There are bloodied corpses, angry mobs, and ragtag bands of refugees depicted in this compilation of their pictures, but precious few of the brothers' subjects are anonymous. In the tradition of Robert Capa, they work from the frontlines, resulting in intimate photographs that haunt the viewer. Peter's human interest shots, taken in the Turnleys' adopted Paris, offer a soothing respite. While the brothers write copious notes on the images, their reflections are relegated to small print in the back of the book, ensuring that the accompanying text does not dilute the power of the visuals.
