As we went from table to table at the press luncheon, meeting with each photographic master, the time was approaching to leave the rooftop and go inside for the speeches and lunch with the honorees of the 2007 Lucie Awards.
Thankfully, Eugene Richards was willing to wait and talk with us about his work.

This soft spoken gentleman whose images represent a passionate, up close depiction of humanity at it’s best and worst , gives you an insight into his work in this video.

But truly, you should be looking at his body of work to get a sense of the man. At the Lucie Awards show at Lincoln Center the following night, he brought an audience to truly believe in the power of what the awards show was celebrating. The power of the still image to have an effect on the world. And his photographs are some of the best examples of that power.
