  • Some Afrikaners Revisited, David Goldblatt

    R1300

    The work of David Goldblatt – as recipient of the 2006 Hasselblad Foundation Award undoubtedly South Africa’s most prominent active photographer – reflects a life-long exploration of the relationship between individual South Africans and the society they live in.

  • Up Up: Stories of Johannesburg’s Highrises

    R650

    UP UP: Stories of Johannesburg’s Highrises presents a selection of buildings in the inner city of Johannesburg. The focus here is on tall modernist towers that quickly became iconic in the architecture of the city. Witnesses to profound shifts in the political history of the metropolis, the skyscrapers have themselves endured immense changes. They are documented here in two ways: firstly, through historical facts, floor plans, archival records and contemporary photographs of their formal architecture; and secondly, through reportage, interviews and essays. This book is the first to document Joburg’s skyscrapers and it offers new insights not only into these classic buildings, but also into contemporary urban life in
    South Africa.
