Photos of poor witmense

It's just been done again by a guy called Finbarr O'Reilly - see what you think.

I think Kevin Bloom missed the point, and shouldn't be attempting to compare with Goldblatt, whom he admits photographed working class Afrikaners anyway. This O'Reilly chap just wants to show the ignoramuses out there that, like, oh my god, white people in SA can be poor too. All that stuff about essentialising and groupyfying is way more sophisticated than what this oke was trying to achieve.
