Publisher's Description

In this two-volume set, two artists and two writers explore the concept of the “model city” through the lens of New Haven, Connecticut. This collaboration grew out of a 2013 joint residency at the Yale University Art Gallery by acclaimed photographers Jim Goldberg (b. 1953) and Donovan Wylie (b. 1971). In Candy, Goldberg uses Super 8 film stills, images of New Haven’s urban landscape, Polaroid portraits, and collaged archival material to create a layered reflection on 20th-century American cities that the artist calls a “photo-novel.” A Good and Spacious Land, with photographs by Wylie, examines topographic changes resulting from the construction of the I-95/I-91 highway interchange in New Haven and connects a contemporary American interpretation of the “promised land” to the underlying biblical narrative. The accompanying text in both volumes includes narratives woven throughout the images as well as essays reflecting on the photographs’ symbolism, social import, and historical contexts.
