For the first time in France, the Centre Pompidou is staging a large-scale retrospective on South African photographer David Goldblatt. The exhibition takes visitors through the entire output of the photographer (b. 1930), and features over two hundred photographs, a hundred-odd previously unpublished documents (taken from the artist’s archives), lesser-known early works, such as the first pictures he took at Randfontein, as well as his most recent photographs. 
Since the 1960s, David Goldblatt has tirelessly explored his native country through his photographs, recording South Africa’s history, physical features and inhabitants. His pictures scrupulously examine the complex history of this country, where he witnessed the introduction of Apartheid, its development and its eventual demise.
