Description

ISBN 0909238715

This is an awesome book on Hillbrow in the 70’s and 80’s.
Glynn Griffiths together with Paddi Clay made this book. They went in and explored Hillbrow, but not before Glynn got an official nod of approval from one of the gang-leaders so he could move around untouched with his high-profile cameras. He says that at times he had to shoot through a hole cut in his jacket because if he was seen with a camera then trouble was soon to follow. It’s funny when you look at the pictures, it looks like such a happy go lucky place, except for the odd street fight scene here and there. Not only are the photos awesome, but Paddi’s revealing commentary leaves with you with such cool insight into each picture.
