Born in Perpignan, in the south of France, in 1964, Maurice Weiss is one of the most successful and acclaimed photographers and photojournalists of our time. During his twenty-five-year career, his images have helped shape the way we see major historical moments, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the Arab Spring. His portraiture, meanwhile, ranges just as widely, from the rich, famous, and powerful to those on the margins of society. Regardless of who he portrays, a Maurice Weiss photograph is ultimately built on his deep rapport with his subjects, a connection that gives his photographs and photo essays a remarkable warmth, rare in contemporary photography.
           
This book gathers iconic images from throughout Weiss’s career, including work done in Berlin, Beijing, Cairo, and Russia and published in such international outlets as Der Spiegel, Libération, and Amnesty Journal. Together the images stand as a testament to a lifetime of capturing history as it happens.
