David Goldblatt: Photographs from South Africa

MoMA July 16–October 6, 1998
  • The Museum of Modern Art

From the 1960s until the end of apartheid in 1990, David Goldblatt photographed South Africa’s architecture, the structures of both its indigenous people and those who colonized the country. The range of Goldblatt’s knowledge of the place is wide, and his photographs describe many aspects of the culture. The exhibition provides an original entrée into the photograph as a means of social criticism.
