Nathan Benn was born in Miami, Florida, and graduated from the University of Miami in 1972. Immediately thereafter he joined the photographic staff of National Geographic, where he remained for 20 years. In 1992 Nathan founded PNI, the world’s first online stock photography portal, which Eastman Kodak acquired in 1998. He was the Director of Magnum Photos, Inc., from 2000–2002. Over the past ten years he revisited and edited his archive, resulting in “Kodachrome Memory: American Pictures 1972-1990,” his first monograph, published by PowerHouse Books in 2013. He is a Trustee Emeritus at the George Eastman House Museum and lives with his wife, a fine arts photographer, and son in Brooklyn.
