JAMBA; CAPITAL DE LIBERDADE, Eduardo Baião (1985)


The town Jamba in southern Angola is best known as the formerly military headquarters of Unita between 1976 and 1992. The book with photographs by Eduardo Baião consists almost completely of colorful spreads. Recycling tropes known from similar books Jamba displays life in a well-organized guerrilla encampment led by Jonas Savimbi who kept on fighting against the MPLA government until his death in 2002.
