Photogrpahy Book: Peter Turnley

Hello everyone! I thought I share a wonderful Photography Book by Peter Turnley that I discovered at a virtual Photography Workshop. Turnley was one of the presenters and was promoting his book A New York – Paris Visual Diary The Human Face of Covid-19. He continued to explain that when the Pandemic started he was stuck in New York. He took the chance with caution (and a lot of mask-wearing) and went out and documented life in New York through black and white photographs, and sharing his thoughts and conversations he had with those he captured. When things were slowly opening back up he then went to Paris and documented their re-opening.

I was very lucky to get a signed copy of the book for Christmas. I wanted to have something the be able to show people in the future what our world was struck with in 2020, and this book was perfect. Every image was very powerful and emotional. Each photograph tells a story and shows how we came together to thank our health care workers. I have selected a few photos that are my favorite through the book from both New York and Paris.
