Robert Polidori is one of the world's most acclaimed photographers of human habitats and environments. His career began in the mid 1980s when he won permission to document the restoration of the Château de Versailles, beginning a love affair with the palace that has continued to this day. He has since documented sites across the world and is currently a staff photographer for "The New Yorker". He was commissioned by the magazine to photograph New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2006 ("After the Flood"), and many of these images were subsequently exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Polidori has received multiple awards: the World Press Award and two Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards, just to name a few.
