Stanley Grenne was born in New York in 1949. During his youth, he was a member of Black Panthers, an activist against the Vietnam War and founder member of SF Camerawork, an exhibition space dedicated to avant-garde photography.

Stanley studied at the Visual Arts School in New York as well as "Image Work" at Cambridge Massachusetts. His encounter with W. Eugene Smith oriented his work towards a photo-journalistic approach for good. He started to work for various magazines, such as News day. In 1986, he arrived in Paris. In 1989, he immortalized the collapse of the Berlin War, especially through his "Kisses to All, Berlin Wall" photograph, which made him famous and launched his photo-journalistic career.

While he was working as a photographer for "Agence Vu"( A Parisian agency), Grenne was imprisoned at the White House in Moscow and risked his life during the bloody coup-d'etat against Boris Eltsine.
Green covered countries which were torn apart due to the war like Nagorno-Karabakh, Iraq, Somalia, Croatia, Kashmir and Lebanon.

He photographed the former Soviet Union, Central America, Asia, the Middle East...
1994 onwards, he became famous for his documentation of the Second war in Chechnya, put together in a book called, Open Wound, by the Trolley Editions.
