This article focuses on David Goldblatt's response to the Aids epidemic in South Africa in the series In the Time of Aids. To better understand this series, this article tracks the development of Goldblatt's work post-1994, with special attention being paid to his depiction of urban and rural landscapes. Also considered is the relationship of In the Time of Aids to two other collections of his work: Intersections (Goldblatt 2005) and Intersections intersected (Goldblatt 2008). The author of this article is interested in the way these collections have been presented in book form and as exhibitions, and how In the Time of Aids has been framed in relation to other concerns expressed in the images from the larger project Intersections. This analysis compares and contrasts Goldblatt's publications and exhibitions, as well as individual images. To this end, the author draws on texts written about his work and on interviews conducted by herself and others.
