From the publisher:
"First published in 1985 by Random House, Rich and Poor is a seminal development in the experimental story telling through photography. Goldberg made portraits of individuals from all social classes, after which the subjects wrote their impression of the image on the face of the photographs. The combination of text and image investigates myths about class, power and happiness while revealing an intimate portrayal of the human condition.
"The postcard sets will be limited to 300 signed editions that will feature a set of 10 cards, a hand numbered and signed colophon and a double sided foldout poster, with one side rich and one side poor. All materials are offset printed on heavyweight matte paper. The set is finished with a hand crafted and etched plexi cover and wrapped in black butcher paper and sealed with an iconic rich and poor"label.
