Royal Photographic Society Honors Two South African Photographers

South African photographers David Goldblatt and Barry Lategan will be honored by the UK’s Royal Photographic Society with Honorary Fellowships.

Goldblatt has distinguished himself through his various works in documentaries and international magazines. Among the numerous feathers in his cap is the Hasselblad Photography Award. In 1989, Goldblatt founded the Market Photography Workshop in Johannesburg, teaching disadvantaged youth photographic skills.

Barry Lategan took the first photographs of Twiggy, a fashion icon who started the thin (but not anorexic!) look in the 1970s. Lategan’s photographs have been published worldwide in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and Life, and his subjects have included Iman, Princess Anne, Calvin Klein and Paul and Linda McCartney.

Goldblatt and Lategan will formally receive their fellowships at an RPS ceremony next month in London.
