Goodman Gallery is pleased to present Markers of Presence, an exhibition of colour photographs by David Goldblatt. In the late 1990s, Goldblatt began exploring the use of colour in his personal photography. Prompted by a new political dispensation in post-apartheid South Africa, as well as technical advances in digital reproduction, Goldblatt felt that colour best captured his feelings about the time.

Goldblatt’s colour photographs are collected under a wide-ranging essay, Intersections, a body of work made between 2001 and 2012.  Subsequently published as Regarding Intersections and Intersections Intersected, the work has been shown in museums worldwide including Centre Pompidou, Paris and New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York among others and held in the permanent collections of SFMOMA, Louis Vuitton Foundation, Marseille Museum of Photography, The Walther Collection and Yale University.  This work included explorations of land and landscape, people, towns and monuments – all held together by Goldblatt’s fundamental interest in our values as a society, and how we express those values in the marks we make and leave behind.

Markers of Presence presents a cross-section of photographs from Intersections. In light of the searching spirit that preoccupied Goldblatt during this period, the exhibition brings together five currents that underpin the series: Fuck All Landscapes; Fences; Possession and Dispossession; Mortality and Memory; and Multiple Views.

A poem by Maneo Mohale, titled the names, written in response to the works on view will accompany the exhibition.
