Woudl you really say that the Bang-Bang Club ended with the death of Oostrebroek? Or was it just the general winding down after the apartheid era was finished? hbdragon88 05:47, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

-- A bit of both really. Oosterbroek's death seemingly 'broke' the group's coherence, but the end of Apartheid also removed the urgency that drove the group. (talk) 11:58, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Ken Oosterbroek[edit]

I personally think that he deserves so much more than a blank wikipedia page. Someone with more information about him, flesh it out.--Normal Phobic (talk) 17:19, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

from the apartheid system to government based on universal suffrage.[edit]

Hello this part of the first phrase I chance: "from the apartheid system to government based on universal suffrage."

Desmond M. Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town, South Africa marked this time as a fight "from repression to freedom, from totalitarian rule to democracy." Source is the book „The Bang-bang Club: Snapshots From A Hidden War“ by Greg Marinovich & Joao Silva , 2000, P ix (9). I write now "from the apartheid system to democracy."

Reception : The Bang-Bang Club and more[edit]

Hello - I started to add more text and information to this Bang-Bang Club. I find the work of this photographers very admirable. For this I use the first edition of the book "The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots From A Hidden War". First print William Heinemann, London, 2000, and for the citation the first print Basics Books, New York, 2000. best.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 18:52, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Some more edits[edit]

Hello : "The Bang Bang Club was a group of photographers and photojournalists" - the four menbers of the club are photojournalist and spezial conflikt photographers at this time- not just some photographers. I chang it.

Second : ...particularly fighting between ANC and IFP supporters, after the lifting of the bans on both political parties. And what about the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging? I add this too.

and starring Taylor Kitsch, Ryan Phillippe, Frank Rautenbach and Malin Åkerman, - maybe this four aktors are not relevant at this top place. Better at films. I added Frank Rautenbach.

Best.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 09:39, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

"The Bang-Bang Club is a myth,"[edit]

hello - more editing

« Le Bang-Bang Club est un mythe, glisse João. Il n’a jamais existé. Ce n’était que quatre potes qui voulaient témoigner d’un moment de l’Histoire... # "The Bang-Bang Club is a myth," says João. It never existed. It was only four friends who wanted to witness a moment of history. ...[1]

The same, but in other words expreced Greg Marinowich in his and Joao Silva book. Because of this I adding a section about the myth. Best.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 16:51, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
