Joao Silva Interviewed


By now most of you are familiar with the story or Joao Silva are you not? A brief recap, he was one of the members of the Bang Bang Club and is a highly celebrated war photographer who stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan in Oct 2010. He lost both of his legs as a result of his injuries. This past November Joao completed the New York Marathon and is obviously recovering well, all things considered. In the video interview below you get to hear his account of what happened and the journey he has been travelling since that day.
