David Goldblatt on his photographic series In Boksburg

David Goldblatt reflects on the ways photography has helped him process the experience of living under apartheid. His series In Boksburg documents life in a South African suburb in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when the restrictions of that system of enforced racial segregation rendered seemingly normal moments in suburban life "abnormal beyond belief."
