Description

From 1977 to 1985, Jim Goldberg photographed the wealthy and destitute of San Francisco, creating a visual document that has since become a landmark work. Through the combination of text and photographs, Rich and Poor's mass appeal was instantly recognizable. In 1984 the series was exhibited alongside Robert Adams and Joel Sternfeld in the Three Americansexhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and was published the following year by Random House. Out of print since 1985, Rich and Poor has been completely redesigned and expanded by the artist for this Steidl edition. Available for the first time in hardcover, Rich and Poor builds upon the classic combination of photographs and handwriting and adds a surplus of vintage material and contemporary photographs that have never been published or exhibited. The photographs in Rich and Poor constitute a shocking and gripping portrait of America during the 1970s and 80s that remains just as relevant todayshow more

Review quote

At 222 pages, Rich and Poor begins with the underprivileged and gradually works it's way to wealth, with many of the prints accompanied by the subject's own handwritten comments about themselves. Gorgeously designed and thoughtfully edited, this book is a standout amongst current photography book.--The Editors "Juxtapoz "show more
