Bob Gosani

Bob Gosani started off at Drum magazine as a messenger but soon moved to the photographic department where he became Jürgen Schadeberg's darkroom assistant. He later became one of Drum's best photographers.[1] Schadeberg said that "Gosani stood out because in the early 1950s good black photographers and press photographers in particular were unheard of".[2]
