David Goldblatt: Structures of Dominion and Democracy

Edited with text by Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska. Text by David Goldblatt, Ivor Powell.

Featured image, captioned, "Young men with dompas, the identity document that every African over the age of 16 years had to carry," White City, Jabavu, Soweto, November 1972, is reproduced from 'David Goldblatt: Structures of Dominion and Democracy.'

This book is a selective retrospective of David Goldblatt (born 1930), a key figure in 20th-century photography. Starting from his earliest photographic series, it shows the foundations of Goldblatt’s critical passion for photography, his social sensitivity and political consciousness. Also presented are his most recent photographs pertaining to the changing situation in his native South Africa. Structures of Dominion and Democracy assembles many of Goldblatt’s influential series, including On the Mines, Some Afrikaners and Structures with some less well-known including Kas Maine, and reconstructs the history of their first publication in the international press. Reproducing original handmade dummies and working plates, the process of bookmaking and other diverse applications of these often iconic images are laid bare. In addition to texts by the photographer, essays by Ivor Powell and Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska explore Goldblatt’s work in the context of South African political and cultural history, as well as his contribution to the wider history of photography.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Huck

Sara Rosen

His new book, Structures of Dominion and Democracy (Steidl) begins in 1949 and continues through 2016, taking us across a sweeping arc of history that is sensitive to the ways in which apartheid penetrated every aspect of life for men, women, and children, both black and white.

Celebrated photographer David Goldblatt dies, aged 87

Celebrated photographer David Goldblatt dies, aged 87

We will miss South African photographer David Goldblatt, whose most recent book joined our list this spring. "Between the earliest and the latest photographs in this book there were some 72 years," he wrote. "Time, you would think, for me to have become quite clear about what I want to photograph. You would be wrong. It is sometimes as difficult now as it ever was in the earliest years to know what to photograph and where to find it. My friend Barney Simon once told me that I am a prowling animal searching for prey. I thought that was rather harsh, but not altogether untrue. There are times while working on an idea when I have a vague sense of something unknown that I want to photograph. I can't say what it is, but I tell myself that I will certainly know it when I see it. Which is not a very dependable operating principle. There have been occasions when I have driven around some part of the country for two or three days searching for something unknown without making a single photograph. I assure myself that this process is essential to clarifying the mind." continue to blog
