Editorial Reviews

In an interview, Greek-English cameraman Platon said that he never thinks of himself as a celebrity photographer: "I am a portrait photographer." That unvarnished focus on image rather than aura is at the heart of the photos of 150 world leaders in his new Power. Shot in a one-year cycle at the United Nations, this pictorial challenges us to reconfirm or amend our view of these powerful men and women. Browse it; buy it.
