Produced for the 2003 exhibition at Modern Art Oxford that celebrated 51 years of Goldblatt’s work, this large-scale photograph is typical of Goldblatt’s celebrated style and is a chance to own a work by one of the world’s most prolific photographers at an affordable price.
This photograph is one of the Boksburg series that documents the characters and luminaries of the South African mining province of that name, and were taken across a two-year period between 1979-1980 and were then published as a book in 1982.
Photographer David Goldblatt is noted for his documentary photography during the turbulent years of apartheid in his native South Africa. Self-taught, his interest began when his mother gave him a camera as a child. His significant break came in 1964 when his images were published in Tatler magazine and he has since become a mainstay of the art canon.
