The photographer, working in the tightly segregated nation that was South Africa, left his country to get these photos published. Parr & Badger, V.2, pp. 106-07: "The furore it [the book] caused made him a perhaps reluctant hero for a generation of aspiring black photographers; despite the success of the book, he never worked again in his homeland, and died penniless and in exile in the United States in 1990." As for the book, "The comprehensiveness and humanity of its view is the reason for both its banning in South Africa and the plaudits it garnered elsewhere."
