Goldblatt (1930-2018) documented the effect of apartheid on South Africans. Using only black and white photographs, he depicted everyday scenes in a way which makes the viewer reconsider the subject. SOME AFRIKANERS was his second book and was considered controversial at the time. Goldblatt describes his work as "the quiet and commonplace where nothing happened and yet all was contained". Art historian and dealer Michael Stevenson says of Goldblatt "There is no artist more important in South Africa than Goldblatt. No one else has reflected the psyche of the country over the past 60 years as he has".
