Few books in South Africa have moved me as much as the “Bang Bang Club”.

The story of the South African press photographers during the apartheid years and their stunning imagery.

I was just a kid when all that was taking place just behind my back.

I was saddened to hear that Joao Siva was recently injured when he trod on a land mine in Afghanistan on October 23. He was with US troops on a mine-sweeping patrol.  He has since  had both his legs amputated and is apparently recovering well.
