Following the trends of photographers Diane Arbus, Nan Goldin, and even Richard Avedon, photographer Jim Goldberg established his name photographing neglected people who’ve struggled outside of mainstream society. Born in 1954, Jim Goldberg is an American photographer who is best known for his collections Open See and Raised By Wolves. In Open See Goldberg photographs the refugees in Europe from war-struck and economically destroyed countries. His photographs tell the stories of the former lives of his models; their tribulations as sex slaves, the horrors they experienced in refugee camps, and the hope they’ve brought to Europe for a better life. In Raised by Wolves tells of the lives of homeless teenagers across California. The photographs document the reasons they chose to leave home, their frequent drug abuse, and their struggles with homelessness and violence. Jim Goldberg’s work often involves writing on his own photographs. This makes each photograph truly one of a kind and unique. It adds a very personal and emotional element to see the subject’s writing on the photograph. Goldberg has been featured at the MOMA and the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris. He currently is a Professor of Photography at the California College of the Arts.
