In Memory of David Goldblatt

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Goldblatt, a photographer whose life’s work documented the impact of the structural divide of Apartheid and its legacy in South Africa. He developed a critical position not just on the subject but an unflinching position in his mode in photography.

Goldblatt was a world-renowned photographer and he will be remembered by the many photographers who he mentored and engaged with to re-write the country’s narratives in telling our own stories. His memory lives on through the work of all of those who have passed through the Market Photo Workshop.
