Goodman Gallery Editions
The Goodman Gallery is proud to announce that the photographer David Goldblatt has just recently received the prestigious 'Rencontres d'Arles Book Award' for his book 'Particulars' which was published in 2003 by Goodman Gallery Editions and printed by the Scan Shop in Cape Town. The book award is one of five categories for the competition that was established in 2002. It has become the focal point of the annual Rencontres d'Arles festival. It is sponsored entirely by the Dakota Group. David is even more proud of this award as it was judged by an international panel comprising of world renowned photographers who have affirmed and celebrate his international status. Last year the Goodman Gallery showed black and white and colour works by David Goldblatt. The show coincided with the launch of Goldblatt's book Particulars. The Particulars series has been an ongoing project, which spans through the seventies and eighties to present day South Africa. Goldblatt portrays particular fragments and details of bodies in both public and private spaces. Here he has reveled in the very contrasting light of the Highveld. He says, 'There is nothing to beat the excitement of a black and white print coming out of a fixer. I seem to have an almost visceral relationship with black and white negatives.'
The Particulars book was published in a trade edition of 400 copies.
