Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of Jim Goldberg’s landmark photographic project ‘Rich and Poor’, These Birds Walk have published a limited edition postcard set and poster to commemorate the occasion. Each set is signed and numbered by the artist.
Jim Goldberg is a Professor of Art at the California College of Arts and Crafts and a member of Magnum Photos. He has been exhibiting for over 30 years and his innovative use of image and text make him a landmark photographer of our times. He began to explore experimental storytelling and the potentials of combining image and text with Rich and Poor, (1977-85), where he juxtaposed the residents of welfare hotel rooms with the upper class and their elegantly furnished home interiors to investigate the nature of American myths about class, power, and happiness. In Raised by Wolves (1985-95), he worked closely with and documented runaway teenagers in San Francisco and Los Angeles to create a book and exhibition that combined original photographs, text, home movie stills, snapshots, drawings, diary entries as well as single and multi-channel video, sculpture, found objects, light boxes and other 3-D elements. Goldberg’s current project focuses on migration, refugees and human trafficking in Europe. Open See (2003-present) is the first volume of an ongoing body of work that will continue to explore the ever-evolving European immigrant community. http://www.jimgoldberg.com
