I did a lot of work in adjustment layers to emphasise the ominous cloud and light up the statue. I wanted to portray the feeling of gloom and despair of war in this image.
Image taken at the South African National Museum of Military History, Johannesburg.
I dedicate this image to all the people who died during the Second Boer War, 1899-1902, mostly wives and children of Boers captured by the English and placed into a new English prison system, the concentration camp.
And now to the 3rd Boer War, that since a “democratic” South Africa in 1994 and ANC Government, over
1600 1700 farmers in South Africa have been systematically murdered (figure excludes their families, often also murdered at the same time).
Some are calling it boer genocide.
