Jodi Bieber's series "Between Dogs and Wolves" tells about a ten-year-long dark moment in the history of South Africa. It started in 1993, just before South Africa’s first democratic elections which brought Nelson Mandela’s ANC to power and ended decades of apartheid policies. For the first time all the ethnic groups could participate in the elections of a country with a history riven by conflicts between different population groups, between the indigenous peoples and migrants from different parts of the world.
The transition from an oppressive system towards democracy was not painless. Despite the prospect of better times, the stench of death floated over South Africa.
