WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Over the four or so years that we spent exploring the Walled City, Greg and I photographed a great many people, most in passing on the stairways and in the alleys or working in the factories we stumbled upon during our visits there.

Almost without exception, we usually never saw any of these people again. A few, however, we spent more time with and, with the help of our indefatigable assistant Emmy acting as go-between, translator and interviewer, they became the subject of extended stories in City of Darkness. Sadly, as the clearance progressed, we lost contact with nearly all of these people but we would love to find out how things turned out for them.

Some of the older residents are no longer with us, but shown here are photographs of some of those we would love to get in touch with. If you recognise anybody and know how they can be contacted, or indeed http://buylasix.net if you are one of these people and are willing to talk to us, please email ian@cityofdarkness.co.uk. All information will be handled in total confidence.

Greg and I are forever grateful to all of those shown in the book, with special thanks to those who allowed us to share their story.
