Notes

‘Goldblatt’s colour photographs are an ongoing exploration of the intersections between people, values and land in postapartheid South Africa. … In these photographs Goldblatt focuses on the expansive South African landscape, often incorporating elements that remind us of the lingering idiocies of apartheid and the ironies of the new South Africa.

In On the Farm Rooinek, Seweweekpoort, Western Cape, 18 February 2006, Goldblatt looks at our intervention and settlement in an arid landscape of the greater Karoo. A roughly-made square stock enclosure, a long-drop and patches of green fields remind us of the harsh and precarious existence that constitutes life in this extreme landscape.’1
