Portraits of Ken Oosterbroek in The Star’s darkroom

Portraits of influential South African photographer Ken Oosterbroek in The Star newspaper’s darkroom in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1989. Oosterbroek documented South Africa’s transitional years to the first democratic election that brought Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress to power and officially dismantled decades of apartheid policies. On April 18, 1994 Oosterbroek was killed when the peacekeeping force panicked under fire in Thokoza, close to Johannesburg, 9 days before the election was held.
