David Goldblatt is South Africas most important photographer.
Goldblatt has been photographing his home country of South Africa for over fifty years, vividly portraying the struggles and changes in this volatile and compelling country. This important retrospective includes every one of Goldblatts series, encompassing decades of South African history.
David Goldblatt (born in Randfontein, South Africa, 1930) the son of Lithuanian-Jewish parents. He became interested in photography in high school, and started his professional career in 1962. Goldblatt's photographs are in the collections of the South African National Gallery, Cape Town; the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. One of the leading member of Magnum Agency, Martin Parr has been a professional photographer for more than 30 years. His work is photography at its best: Parr photographs ordinary people, urban spaces, scenes in everyday life, and transform them into stories.
In 1999 he began working in color for the first time, manipulating colors and composing the images according to his nuanced view of things. This change in Goldblatts narrative style is registered in his publication of Belonging, on the new South African identity and urban areas, and more recently in Intersections (2005), on rural places and South African natural landscapes.
