In stock

Category: Tag:

During the final, bloody days of South African Apartheid, four remarkable young photographers-by turns friends and rivals-banded together as they covered the brutal violence. This immensely powerful and harrowing story, written by two surviving members of the group, details their political, emotional, and personal journeys through these intense years as the country moved toward democracy. The Bang-Bang Club depicts the terrible moral dilemmas faced by journalists and photographers. When does a sense of humanity overwhelm ambition and professional duties? When to put aside the camera and get involved? This is a vivid, highly personal look at war, written by two men whose life and work are testament to the lengths that a journalist will go in order to capture the truth.
