Georgia’s Rose Revolution

Possessing an uncanny perception of the next important happening has become the hallmark by which Steven Weinberg has focused his photographic attention over the past two decades. As a result, Weinberg has been able to produce photographs that speak from a vantage point ahead of expected events, allowing imagery that becomes simultaneously timely and timeless.

For more than 15 years, Steven has extensively photographed the historic transition of emerging market economies in Central Europe and the former Soviet states as a retrospective commentary on the developments that have helped reshape a new era in world history.

Shooting in a style that can be best described as corporate photojournalism having applications for conceptual advertising, his work is represented by Getty Images and is continuously published on a worldwide basis for several Fortune 500 companies.

Significant topical coverage by Nikon highlights Steven’s images as part of their “Legends of the Lens” website photographer series.
