There's no such thing as "the greatest photographer in the world," but, if there were, it would be David Goldblatt.
Goldblatt is also something of a paradox. How is it that someone who has been honored so often by so many is still relatively unknown outside of his native South Africa?

Photo District News asked me to mark the occasion by examining his long career and, along the way, explaining the paradox. You can read what I have to say, here.
