  • Not on view

These photographs are from Subotzky's series about Beaufort West, the oldest town in the arid Great Karoo region of the Western Cape, which boasts affluent suburbs, historic monuments to the Anglo-Boer War, and the spectacular Karoo National Park. At the same time, Beaufort West is characterized by systemic poverty, crime, and unemployment, the legacy of South Africas apartheid past.
