Rich and Poor • Jim Goldberg • Magnum PhotosAmerican documentary photographer Jim Goldberg shoots long-term projects about marginalised groups. He is best known for his project Raised By Wolves, about homeless children in San Francisco, but ten years earlier he published Rich and Poor, an extensive series on rich and poor people in their houses in San Francisco. Originally shot between and , Rich and Poor was published in by Random House and soon sold out. It is now republished by Steidl. Goldberg's method was to take a photo and then ask the person in the photo to comment on the image by writing in the surrounding whitespace. These finished images therefore portray not only the person but also their stories, written in their own handwriting.
