The Magnum photojournalist Paolo Pellegrin has documented many of this generation’s major conflicts and disasters, from wars to revolutions to tsunamis. “I am trying—as I do in all my work—to create a bridge,” he said in a recent interview. “To use photography to say something that goes beyond the surface, that vibrates, that resonates, that speaks about a form of psychological portraiture, if you will. To make a connection.”
