At a time of strenuous worldwide efforts to protect our climate and of palpable changes in nature, the works of Stuart Franklin, who was born in London in 1956, are touching a nerve.

Franklin studied photography at the West Surrey College of Art and Design and subsequently started work for the Sunday Times and the Sunday Telegraph Magazine.
As a member of Agence Presse Sygma in Paris (1980 to 1985), he expanded his knowledge and continued his fascination with the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Since 1989, Stuart Franklin has been a member of the world-famous photographic agency Magnum, and was its elected president from 2006 to 2009.

At the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989, Stuart Franklin created a photographic icon with his world-famous photograph of a demonstrator stopping a column of tanks. This image now stands as a symbol for this incident and as a metaphor for nonviolent resistance.
Subsequently, Franklin decided to work more extensively for magazines and between 1990 and 2004, created some 20 photographic documentaries for National Geographic.
