South Africa – Transition to Democracy

Joao Silva

South Africa. 1990-1994

Joao Silva’s South African work is run through by its extraordinary breadth, as well as its breathtaking intensity. South Africa, his adopted country from a young age, is where he came of age as a conflict photographer. It is also where he lost friends and colleagues to the attrition of that civil conflict. These images are part of his retrospective which was exhibited at Visa Pour l’Image at Perpignan, 2013.
