Magnum photographer Mikhael Subotzky's first book, about society, crime and punishment in South Africa, focuses on the small Karoo town of Beaufort West and considers the town, its prison, its vivid characters and poignant social landscapes. With an introduction by leading South African writer Jonny Steinberg and Subotzky's own commentary, the book is both a document of social evidence and the visual manifesto of the best of the new wave of South African art photographers.
Signed and dated by Mikhael Subotzky on title page.
