Chambers often used images from the media in his work. This work includes a well-known photograph of parents carrying their dead child after the Soweto uprising in South Africa in 1976. The events in Soweto illustrated the inhumanity and brutality of the apartheid system. In Britain, Barclays Bank became a symbol of the South African apartheid because of its involvement there. There were widespread protests here aimed at companies with South African links. The Conservative government was also criticised for its refusal to impose economic sanctions.
