about this item
Moira’s photographs feature striking episodes of colonial history, including the anti-apartheid struggle, the battle for Zimbabwe and the national reconstruction in Mozambique. But what makes this book truly remarkable is that it brings a personal note to historical episodes, adding humour and a human touch. Of particular note are the series on Ilha de Moçambique, miners and cotton, and also the images of Samora Machel addressing a rally. There are touching photographs of Ruth First, Joe Slovo and Graça Machel. Many of the photographs in this book have been printed for the first time as they always existed as negatives, kept in a shoebox, forgotten, until now.
