One day he was no longer there. I wondered and worried. Then a series of events unfolded. I learned that brother and sister angels, Jonno and Nicole Sherwin, had rescued him from penury and beggarhood. They had set wheels in motion that would lead him to learn a trade and thus, ultimately to a better life. Within days, photographer extraordinaire, Mia Feinstein and I were on our way to the South African Society for the Blind to meet, interview and photograph Everson Ngwenya, Liberation War Hero.

We went to see 'Barney's Version', without any expectations other than we knew that it was based on a novel by the late Mordechai Richler. We had not been seduced by any splashy publicity and were frankly unprepared for the impact it would have on us when, for the next two hours, we were held captive by this remarkable piece of cinematic theatre.
