About the book: 
Award-winning photojournalist Greg Marinovich has covered war and conflict throughout Africa and the world. In Shots from the Edge he recounts his experiences in these hotspots, and recalls his encounters with rebels, child soldiers, illegal immigrants, militia members, peacekeepers, aid workers, genocide survivors and orphans, each with a remarkable story to tell.
 
With compassion and care, Marinovich documents more than two decades’ worth of turbulent history and reveals the human side of the conflicts. Some of the moments are deeply moving and profound; others so surreal as to blur into insanity. Covering South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Somalia, Rwanda, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Chechnya, India, Saudi Arabia, Palestine and Trump’s America, this book exposes the reader to extraordinary people, places and experiences.
 
The accounts in  Shots from the Edge  are insightful, tragic, shocking and occasionally humorous, but above all they are a poignant reminder of the brutality and indignity of war, and of people’s resilience under the most hostile circumstances.
