Jim Goldberg’s "Rich and Poor" resonates as economic gap continues to widen

01/30/18

Jim Goldberg’s Rich and Poor reveals heartbreaking personal narratives of haves and have nots

January 24 – April 8, 2018
Main Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre
Presented with Collaboration: A Potential History of Photography
Curated by Paul Roth and Ilana Shamoon, assisted by Christine McLean

From 1977 to 1985, photographer Jim Goldberg worked with both impoverished and affluent residents of California’s San Francisco Bay area to realize the series Rich and Poor. His powerful portraits, inscribed with revealing self-observations by the people he photographed, captured the social and economic divide increasingly prevalent in the United States.

“…Goldberg’s project is on perhaps its fullest public view ever and its timing is uncanny: 40-plus images, as well as his notes and planning documentation as he prepared to embark on what, even then, struck him as an unbridgeable rift between have and have not that’s since widened by a staggering degree.”
