'A railway shunter who dreamed of a garden without concrete or bricks, watered by this dam on his plot or small-holdin.'
David Goldblatt is the youngest of the three sons of Eli and Olga Goldblatt. His grandparents arrived in South Africa from Lithuania around 1893, having fled the persecution of Jews in the Baltic countries. He began photographing in 1948 and has documented developments in South Africa through the period of apartheid to the present. (read more on him here)
