VIDEO DIARIES: DYING FOR PUBLICITY

In Video Diaries: Dying for Publicity, Chris Steele-Perkins bears witness to the infinite sorrows of Africa. At times unbearably poignant and painfully honest, he documents famine and disease in Somalia and the Sudan while questioning the complex business of trying to make a difference through documentary photography.
