Books on Books Vol.7 “In Boksburg”
David Goldblatts In Boksburg stands as one of the most important observations of a middle-class white community in South Africa during the apartheid years. Published in 1980, it presents an accumulation of everyday details from the community of Boksburg through which a larger portrait is revealed of white societal values within a racially divided state. Books on Books 7 reproduces all seventy-one black and white photographs as well as Goldblatts eloquent introduction to the work. The noted writer and editor, Joanna Lehan, contributes a contemporary essay written for this volume.
