Notes

In his last interview, photographer David Goldblatt spoke to Australian journalist Tim Douglas about his rich legacy:

‘I am a photographer,’ he says. ‘I don’t hold exhibitions to glorify my artistic skill. These things I capture in my work are real. I photograph things that are important to me and to society. I want the pictures to be seen, because I want the message to be heard.’1
