Alex Gurian reviews David Goldblatt

David Goldblatt, born November 29, 1930, is a South African photographer who is famous for his portrayal of South Africa under apartheid. Goldblatt began photographing at age 18, and the images of South Africa under apartheid were done in black and white, as he believed that color “was too sweet a medium” to convey the horrors of the apartheid and the anger and fear it instilled. Goldblatt didn’t begin photographing in color until the late 1990’s while working on a project involving blue asbestos.
