Photographers' References is a book collection of in-depth interviews with established photographers. Created in 2014 by Frédérique Destribats and Baptiste Lignel.

Each conversation held over an extended period of time exposes a photographer’s creative and thought processes and provides insight into their practice, mapping out personal references and influences that have contributed to shape their distinctive visual language.

In this first issue of the collection David Goldblatt, one of South Africa’s master photographers, goes over his carreer, his country, his productions, and his books, in a conversation with Baptiste Lignel. From the early days as an editorial photographer for local magazines in the 1950s to his international reconnaissance as a major author and analyst of the complexities of his home country. An in-depth exploration of his work with an insight into his own defining references. This interview was conducted via email between April 2011 and August 2014.

"(...) as an in-depth introduction of a very relevant contemporary photographer, this first book in what I hope will be an extended series delivers everything it promises." — JM Colberg
