Jim Goldberg: Rich and Poor. Photographs and afterword by Jim Goldberg. Random House, New York, 1985. 160 pp. First edition, Second printing. Quarto. Wrappers.
Goldberg's portraits of people from opposite ends of the economic spectrum quickly became a classic work. The subjects are photographed in their own surroundings. Their handwritten personal statements provide captions for each image. The resulting combination gives a disturbing look at American myths of wealth and poverty in a surprisingly powerful text and photo format. Goldberg's afterword underscores his intent to inspire a reinterpretation of the guiding myths of American society.
