I initially posted this to rec.photo.digital.slr-systems &
alt.photography, while intending to post to rec.photo.digital, so here
it is for those who do not visit the other two groups.

Another side of the combat/war photographer Joao Silva's recovery story
after he lost his legs to a mine/IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2010.
This is one tough photographer.
He is, along with Greg Marinovic is one of the two survivors of the
original "Bang Bang Club" these guys continue to put themselves in
harms way to bring conflict images to various news media outlets.
