In Boksburg, David Goldblatt photographs the reality of apartheid

David Goldblatt reflects on how photography has helped him process the experience of living under apartheid. His series In Boksburg (1979/1980) documents life in that South African suburb in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when enforced racial segregation rendered seemingly normal moments of suburban life "abnormal beyond belief."
