Tony Weaver is one of Africa’s most widely published photo-journalists. He was a freelancer from 1988-2000, working as southern Africa correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's TV News, and BBC's Africa Service. Weaver spent many years travelling Africa, covering hard news, environmental issues, and writing travel features from across the continent.
From 2000-2014, he wrote a weekly column, ‘Man Friday’, for the Cape Times, and was also the newspaper's news editor, and later opinion editor. Man Friday now appears in Die Burger and focuses on environmental issues.
