Portraits of Power

My Modern Met

In September 2009, British photographer Platon Antoniou had the unique chance to shoot portraits of nearly all current world leaders at the UN General Assembly. You’ve probably seen some of those iconic images before – Putin, Berlusconi, Obama – but going through the whole series is yet a whole ‘nother experience. I’ve been lucky enough to see the images at an exhibition in Vienna and I’d almost say this alone is worth a travel there. Also recommended: the book with all images.
