Renowned photographer, Peter Turnley was in New York City in the early days of the Covid lockdown. In his own words, “In New York city, the first day of lockdown, I did what was most natural to me-I went out with my camera. I was stunned and shaken by what I saw. I realized immediately that this was the first time I was going to witness a World War with an invisible enemy at “home”, and it became clear to me that this was going to impact every single person on the planet, and every person had a story. I immediately began a daily visual diary. This book represents a visual diary from March until August, in New York, and Paris.”
Turnley’s new, limited-edition book, A New York–Paris Visual Diary–The Human Face of Covid-19 is available for pre-order with a special price until October 15. The book can only be ordered from my site. This is a deluxe limited-edition book, and I have been very enheartened by the tremendous international interest in this book. The book includes 120 photographs, 60 from New York, and 60 from Paris, and 40 pages of diary text. All books ordered will be signed and delivered before Christmas.
The photographs of this book were nominated for the “Visa D’Or Prize” for being among the most important photographs of this year. They were offered a headline exhibit at the prestigious international photography festival in Perpignan, France.
“It is essential that at this moment in our collective life, that the stories of so many heroes and victims, of all dimensions, be documented, helping to bring us together now, and for memory.” ….Peter Turnley
“The photographs and stories in this book are in solidarity with every person in the world-all who have been in the middle of this war-truly a World War with an invisible enemy. Our human family worldwide finds itself in the middle of this crisis. This visual diary is also, our story.” …Peter Turnley
