Behind the Lens tells the story of a small selection of struggling photographers who risked their lives to document South Africa during apartheid. These photographers saw their work as being part of the struggle — undermining the Apartheid regime by showing the world and fellow South Africans an alternative reality to State propaganda. It explores their victories and their pain as they reflect back 20 years later on what they set out to do, where we are today, and the role played by these visual historians.
