A groundbreaking work of documentary!
Raised by Wolves was a good ten years of working with the kids; collecting ephemera; and making the exhibition and the book.
Still when it came time for the book and exhibition to be produced, and all the deadlines were mounting, aesthetic choices had to be made quickly as to what would be included and what was to go back into boxes. So there was a lot that hasn’t been looked at since....Based on what I was witnessing on the streets, I knew that I needed to record what I was experiencing in ways that just couldn’t be done with the camera alone. I have, since the beginning of my career, used text, video, audio, Polaroids, found objects, and ephemera. With Raised by Wolves it was my first attempt to incorporate all these various approaches into one project."--From High and Low: Jim Goldberg’s Works in Process READ MORE, and see a recent, 'digital rendition' of the book, with recently discovered recordings.
