David Goldblatt (1930 – 2018) is considered one of photography’s greats, noted for his portrayal of South Africa during the rise and dismantling of Apartheid. With a career spanning seven decades, he documented the history, people, structures and landscapes of South Africa with a quiet determination; and an unflinching sense of what is right and just, and what is not.
