About the photographer and author:
Nick Danziger is one of the world’s most renowned photojournalists. Much of his life has been dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times in best-selling books, in award-winning documentaries and in photography. He has won numerous awards for his work, amongst them is an Honorary Fellowship awarded by the Royal Photographic Society, and the Royal Geographical Society’s Ness Award in recognition of raising public understanding of contemporary social, political and environmental issues. He has also won the World Press Photo 1st prize in the single portrait category. His photographs have been published internationally and are part of several museum collections.
Rory MacLean is one of Britain's most expressive and innovative travel writers. His ten books, including UK best-sellers 'Stalin's Nose' and 'Under the Dragon', and most recently ‘Berlin: Imagine a City'’, have challenged and invigorated the genre, and – according to the late John Fowles – are among works that 'marvellously explain why literature still lives'. He has won awards from the Canada Council and the Arts Council of England as well as a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship, and was nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary prize. He has written and presented over 50 BBC radio programmes and worked on movies with Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, Rory divides his time between Berlin, Dorset and London where he is writer-in-residence at the Archive of Modern Conflict, weaving narratives into its collection of four million photographs.
