David Goldblatt: Photographs 1948–2018
Considered one of the greatest photographers of our time, David Goldblatt is regarded for his compelling observations of South Africa during the rise and dismantling of apartheid. By turning his focus on the nation’s people, his images offer powerful reflection and insight into the country’s turbulent history.

A landmark exhibition for the MCA, this is the first major retrospective of David Goldblatt's work in the southern hemisphere and encompasses the breadth and scope of his career. The exhibition will feature key black-and-white and colour photographic series, as well as early vintage prints and never-before-seen material from his personal archive.

Exclusive to Sydney. Part of the Sydney International Art Series.
