David Goldblatt was internationally renowned for documenting South Africa’s people and turbulent history with a quiet determination and unflinching sense of what is right and just, and what is not. Capturing seven decades of his work, David Goldblatt: Photographs 1948–2018 features his compelling portrayal of the rise and dismantling of apartheid. This Sydney-exclusive exhibition includes his striking key black-and-white and colour photographic series, as well as never-before-seen material from his personal archive. This exhibition is presented as a part of Sydney International Art Series.
