Ralph Kapper

Photographer whose short and tragic life took him first to Cambodia as a war photographer and then to Bangladesh where he witnesed a horrifying massacre of women and children by Pakistani troops lead by a young general called Zia. After a severe breakdown he managed to reach an ashram in northern India.

After returning to America he found employment as a photographer in a Florida theme park for, as he said, he wanted to be surrounded by happy children to blot out the memory of those he had seen mutilated. He took his life at the age of 36 in 1983. Since then, images printed from the last roll of film found in his camera have reached six figures on the secondary market.
