"The camera is in itself a frontier, a barrier of sorts that one is constantly breaking down so as to get closer to the subject…" — Martine Franck

Martine Franck has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1983, and before that a member of two other photo agencies. In a world dominated by men, she has long distinguished herself as a photographer of grace and elegance. I have always admired her work for its sophisticated compositions and defining moments of beauty. Many of her images are iconic and familiar, even to those who are unsure of the photographer.

The Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York is currently exhibiting her work, “Martine Franck: Peregrinations,” until early August. This is an excellent opportunity to see some of these amazing prints first-hand and to reconsider Franck’s pioneering role in Photography’s history. Her work has influenced many. For those who would like to know her better, this Magnum-produced video of Franck discussing her life and her work is not to be missed. —Lane Nevares
