Photojournalist Ron Haviv quoted about his trademark scarf for a fashion feature in the July 27, 2015 issue of New York Magazine. See his portrait by staff photographer Bobby Doherty linked below.
"I wear a scarf pretty much every day. As a photojournalist, there are dozens of situations where scarves come in handy — from UV protection, to protest situations where there might be tear gas involved, to conflict work where you might need to have a tourniquet available. Last year, I was covering gold mining in the Amazon, and I fell down a hill into an area that was very difficult to get out of, and somebody was able to pull me out using my scarf.”
