Between 1956 and 2006 the Polish reporter and poet Ryszard Kapuściński travelled to more than 100 countries, documenting wars of decolonization, resistance movements, and everyday life. Kapuściński published numerous books in those 50 years, reknowned works of literary reportage that have been translated into 36 languages. Ryszard Kapuściński: The Poet of Reportage chronicles the writer’s life and work in a series of photographs, many taken by Kapuściński himself, accompanied by excerpts from Kapuściński’s writing and historical background on the events he witnessed.
