Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This work is another contribution to the growing pictorial record of apartheid in South Africa, and like some earlier series of black-and-white photographs it is haunted with pathos and irony. Like the pictures from Peter Magubane's Magubane's South Africa ( LJ 5/15/78), Goldblatt's images span 35 years and qualify as works of art in their own right. Complementing the harsh reality represented by the photographs are excerpts from the writings of South African novelist Gordimer, which in their way are as telling as the scholarly pieces that accompany South Africa, the Cordoned Heart , edited by Omar Badsha ( LJ 5/15/86), a work to which Goldblatt also contributed. Despite the photographic essays already available, libraries may still find this handsome book worth acquiring. Paul H. Thomas, Hoover Inst. Lib., Stanford, Cal.

Thoughtful and thought-provoking photographs of apartheid. I love the fact that these are real people, real lives affected. The text adds strong literature merit to the collection.

Gordimer's work may be hard to follow in the full length narrative but in junks it is poetry in prose and makes a great compliment to Goldbaltt's photography.
