05.13.13 Interviewing David Goldblatt

leave a comment »

In July 2011 while I was in Cape Town working on Love From Manenberg and researching apartheid-era portraiture at UCT, I had the opportunity to interview David Goldblatt. David’s responses  to my questions concerning photography and Apartheid were thoughtful and, in my opinion, brilliant. I’ve spent many hours reflecting on his words and his generous spirit in the time since this interview took place. Below is an excerpt from our conversation. Additional excerpts will be published in the coming weeks.
