The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War is an autobiographical styled text about the Bang-Bang Club, a group of four South African photographers active within the townships of South Africa during the apartheid period, particularly between 1990 and 1994.

In 2010, the Canadian director Steven Silver released a film adaptation of the book as a full-feature film also entitled The Bang-Bang Club.
