Guardian Features Shots That Nearly Killed War Photographers

The Guardian has done a feature on their site featuring photographs from war photographers that nearly cost them their lives. In the list is South African Bang Bang Club photographer Joao Silva who speaks about his experience last year in Afghanistan where he stepped on a landmine which cost him his legs. Also in the article is Joao’s friend and fellow Bang Bang Club photographer Greg Marinovich.
