Five Photographers - A Tribute to David Goldblatt now on at the Durban Art Gallery reflects on world-renowned photographer and icon David Goldblatt's contribution to photography by looking at a new generation of photographers.

This exhibition, one of the last projects that Goldblatt worked on, was developed as a tribute exhibition by the French Institut of South Africa to celebrate his retrospective exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (February-May, 2018).

The event is described by arts journalist Wanda Hennig as a “beyond-stunning exhibition”.

Photographers featured are:

Alexia Webster (South Africa) - Street Studios. She uses street corners and public spaces to set up outdoor studios
Jabulani Dhlamini (South Africa) - the memory and remembrance of Sharpeville.
Mauro Vombe (Mozambique) - public transport and powerless passengers in Maputo
Pierre Crocquet (South Africa) - Pinky Promise: perpetrators and victims of sexual abuse

The exhibition title references Goldblatt as another photographer.

Five Photographers - A Tribute to David Goldblatt runs until August 24, 2019, at the Durban Art Gallery which is situated on the second floor of the Durban City Hall, entrance in Anton Lembede (formerly Smith) Street opposite the Playhouse. Gallery hours: Monday to Saturday 08h30 to 16h00 and Sundays from 11h00 to 16h00. More information on 031 311 2262/6.
