    While looking through the photos, an ad to come up to visit South Africa “no visa, no fee!”. Yeah, this may have been a long time ago but…still fail…

    I read this book years ago and it is truly one of the most powerful stories I have ever read. These guys took great risks to show the world what was unfolding in South Africa at the time and deserve our thanks for that.

    That photo is pretty horrifying.

    Having read the book I am curious as to how they are going to pull this one off. The book was gory and harrowing – describing in detail situations the group of photographers found themselves in and what can and did go wrong.

    I must admit that when much younger I had some dreams of being a ‘war-photographer’ but having read the book I am not certain that I would have had the courage or mental strength to do the job.

    Let’s just hope that they do it justice, especially to the memory of Kevin Carter.

    Too much Xeni. Really horrible.

    Yeah, I’m finding this evening heading into the goddamn toilet real fucking fast. From Reddit’s Mentally-Challenged Man Beaten to Death to this.

    Christ, the heart of this planet has to bleed a rich broth of pure pain knowing that it breeds such deep evils.

    It is only by witnessing horror that we get the strength to fight it.

    Don’t want to be a killjoy here, and I’m sure you have a righteous justification for it, but I really wasn’t planning on looking at a graphic photograph of a man being murdered quite so early in the morning.

    I’m not sure where I would file this in my directory of wonderful things, but well done for finding a place for it in yours.

    @ #15 Mojave,
    Dude you are not the only one that noticed this.
    What a FAIL for placement of the article!
    That just made my stomach churn.
