TJ Johannesburg Photographs 1948-2010/Double Negative is a joint project by photographer David Goldblatt and writer Ivan Vladislavic. The result is an exceptional dialogue between Goldblatt’s 270 images taken over more than 60 years of photographing Johannesburg, a metropolis scarred by the consequences of apartheid, and Vladislavic’s narrative fiction.
TJ & Double Negative, published by Contrasto, recently won the “Best Photography Book 2011” at the Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards.
