About Rich and Poor
From 1977 to 1985, Goldberg photographed the wealthy and destitute of San Francisco. He created a visual document that has since become a landmark work. Through the combination of text and photographs, this book’s mass appeal was instantly recognizable. And in 1984 the series was exhibited alongside Robert Adams and Joel Sternfeld in the “Three Americans” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, and was published the following year by Random House.
Out of print since 1985, Jim Goldberg’s Rich and Poor has been completely re-designed and expanded by the artist for Steidl. And now it is available for the first time in hardcover. The book 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 70’s and 80’s that remains just as relevant today.
