‘Five Photographers’ reflects on world renowned photographer and South African icon David Goldblatt’s contribution to photography by looking at a new generation of photographers. This exhibition, one of the last projects that Goldblatt worked on, was developed as a tribute exhibition by the French Institut of South Africa to celebrate his retrospective exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris in 2018 (Feb-May 2018).

It includes the work from 4 photographers that Goldblatt and John Fleetwood had selected, called ‘Five Photographers’.The exhibition title playfully references David as another photographer.

First shown in Johannesburg at the Alliance Française (May 2018), the exhibition traveled, after Goldblatt’s passing, to the Centro Cultural Franco-Moçambicano, Maputo, Mozambique (Feb 2019). In 2019, it will further be shown in Maseru, at the National Arts Festival and Durban.
