From the publisher:
“Between 1999 and 2011 David Goldblatt did work that he had not previously attempted: personal photography in color. While he had used color extensively in professional work since 1964, he had done almost no personal photography in this medium.
"This book brings together a selection of Goldblatt’s color photography in South Africa from 2002 to 2011. An earlier version, Intersections, was published by Prestel in 2005, and the catalogue Intersections Intersected, consisting of paired black and white and color photographs, was published by Serralves Museum, Porto, in 2008.”
Fascinated with the idea of intersections, Goldblatt travelled the country in search of the inherent intersections that exist within the nuances of socio-political life of everyday South Africans, which include ideas, values, histories and identity among many others.
