There is a marvelous exhibition on view here of works by a South African photographer named David Goldblatt. He's not widely known in this country, but his photos offer a chronicle of the apartheid and post-apartheid eras through glimpses of everyday life instead of shots of protests and politics. I find these images to be quietly moving and heartfelt, and think that they offer a glimpse of South Africa that supplements what you will see or read from reporters covering the World Cup.

Today, both the NY Times and the NY Review of Books present features on the exhibition, as well as online slideshows. If you like what you see, there are over 150 works on view through the summer.
