In 1993, Kendall Hunter travelled to Jahannesburg, South Africa, as a volunteer photojournalist for the South African newspaper, New Nation. She immersed herself in the lives of the South African people and witnessed firsthand the country's most monumental changes, including the demise of apartheid legislation and Nelson Mandela's ascent to the presidency. As a photojournalist, her life was often at risk, but her photographs of this difficult and violent time were published internationally. She also made many freindships, and grew to love South Africa and its people. Black Taxi is Kendall Hunter's personal account, in words and photographs, of her year spent working, living, and documenting South Africa's journey to freedom.
A native of Banff, Alberta, Kendall Hunter is now based in Vancouver, BC where she works as a freelance writer and photojournalist.
