"David Goldblatt stands as South Africa's most respected and important documentary photographer. His work in his native country has consistently been uncompromising in its critical exploration of South African society, through the apartheid years during the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and into the more recent post-apartheid period. His photographs of the architecture of South Africa make an eloquent statement about the inequalities of life there: a beautiful villa on the sea juxtaposed with a black mother and child sleeping where their now destroyed house once stood; the elegant white-washed stairway of a winery and a man building a tiny house for himself out of cinder-block. This monograph, published on the occasion of a major retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, brings together work from throughout his career, including recent, never-before-published material."-the publisher.
