Mariana Cook: Justice
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Featured image — of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the veteran anti-apartheid activist and peace campaigner often described as "South Africa’s moral conscience" — is reproduced from Justice, best-selling photographer Mariana Cook's new book of portraits from the forefront of the international human rights movement. Tutu is quoted: "And isn’t it extraordinary, in a world where might does sometimes seem to be right, that in the end it is goodness that prevails? We were involved in a struggle against the injustice of apartheid. Many times we seemed to be overpowered. The apartheid government had all the paraphernalia imaginable. Even so, goodness ultimately prevailed, and there were individuals whose actions have transformed the world for the better. Someone like the English Anglican bishop Trevor Huddleston, who was the second Archbishop of the Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean. I remember the first time I met him; I was walking with my mother, and the white priest tipped his hat as he passed us. I had never seen a white man pay his respects to a black woman. It made me realize the injustice of inequality, and the ability of religion to bridge the overwhelming gap between the treatment of blacks and whites."
