South African 1962- Top Artists
Greg Marinovich is a highly regarded photojournalist, filmmaker and author who distinguished himself photographing the fatal conflicts that preceded the first democratic elections in South Africa in 1994. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography in 1991 for a series of photographs of African National Congress supporters murdering a man they suspected of being an Inkatha Freedom Party spy. Marinovich co-authored a non-fiction book The Bang-Bang Club (Basic Books, 2000) with João Silva that took readers beyond the photographs, giving context to that tumultuous time as well as many personal stories of those involved. The photographer won the Sunday Times Alan Paton Award in 2017 for Murder at Small Koppie: The real story of the Marikana Massacre, an investigative account of the events leading up to the killing of 34 striking miners in South Africa on 16 August 2012.
