Fingerprint (*1st printing / 2nd printing*)

@ Goldberg, Jim


Presentation by Stanley / Barker:

" Often considered Jim Goldberg's seminal body of work, Raised By Wolves collages ten years of photographs, texts, films and installations into an epic narrative of the lives of runaway teenagers in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In Fingerprint, Goldberg exhibits many never-before-seen Polaroids from the project, which served as drafts for photographs he would later make, as well as gifts for the subjects themselves. The images are sometimes scrawled with text proclaiming the identities, challenges, and resilience of the teens, and other times capture a quiet reality of life on the street. 

Encased in a box set, the 45 loose leaf facsimile Polaroids create a freshly intimate and fragmented account of this classic body of work. "

Goldberg, Jim

Jim Goldberg is an American photographer based in San Francisco, he is a member of Magnum Photos since 2006. His work was on display alongside Robert Adams and Joel Sternfeld in the exhibition "Three Americans" at the MoMA in New York in 1984; an exhibition then described as "a show of politically charged and socially conscious images". His most important photobooks are:  - "Rich and Poor" (Random House, 1985 and Steidl, 2014), a series of portraits - of rich and poor people - accompanied by handwritten notes by the people he photographed, reflections on their life, their condition, their aspirations.  - "Raised by Wolves" (Scalo, 1995), a chronicle of the life of teenagers living in the streets of California. In 2020, the English publisher Stanley / Barker released "Fingerprint", a boxed set of 45 unbound images, a project by the artist revisiting the corpus of images made during the shooting of "Raised by Wolves". © Portrait by Alessandra Sanguinetti,  Magnum Photos
