How it works


Publisher's black cloth binding with gilt titles on spine.

True first edition of the Hasselblad Prize winning photographer's second and most famous book. Limited to 1000 numbered copies and signed by Goldblatt. 

166 pp, with 80 full page photographic reproductions in black and white, with captions to the facing pages.

Book is clean and square. Binding solid. Dust jacket still in good condition but with some wear along the top edge.

'This book richly reveals the people David Goldblatt has photographed and something of their world and their time. But Some Afrikaners Photographed is not an attempt at definition. It is the personal vision of a man aware of his own identity who has tried through his camera to find and grasp the identity of others. In doing this he has transcended the "we" and the "them" which so dominate relations within South Africa. The integrity of the photographer combined with the directness and intensity of his perception have produced a collection of photographs of compelling significance - to photography and to our understanding of the people he has photographed.'
