Johannesburg: Goodman Gallery Editions, 2003. First edition one of only 500 copies, with 27 black-and-white photographic plates Large sqare quarto. Signed by the photographer, David Goldblatt. In fine condition, with the original wrapping. South Africa's most distinguished photographer," David Goldblatt was a pioneer in documenting the struggle against apartheid in the 1950s. At a time when "it was extraordinary for anyone even to think of making human photographs of nonwhites... Goldblatt was there" (New York Times). Goldblatt's work "has provided one of the broadest and most objective records of the years of apartheid and the birth of a new South Africa" (Parr & Badger II:114). His images exchange an view of "large or terrible events [for]... the workplace, the home and the street, the way people walked and sat, their postures and bodies, what they wore, how they spent their leisure, under apartheid" (ArtForum).
