Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Lens Blog - Finbarr O'Reilly
In boksburg offers a sober view of a bygone era of legislated white privilege... The photographs reveal that life for small-town, middle-class whites in South Africa was much as it was elsewhere, only with apartheid looming behind it.
Aperture Magazine - Ian Bourland
Goldblatt’s trenchant account of 1970s-era, middle-class white privilege in the 1982 book In Boksburg is a sobering counterpoint to the politically inflected photojournalism of the time, in which incendiary racial conflicts portrayed South Africa in a state of endless crisis.
