Statement from Jim Goldberg on the back of print “Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA. 1991.”
“A band of kids invited me up to Psycho’s squat above Hollywood Boulevard. We walked up winding roads and past crowded homes tucked into the hillside. The kids in front of me disappeared in-between two houses, they had climbed a makeshift ladder through the brush. I followed. All of a sudden the overgrown landscape opened to a vast derelict estate. At one time this is where Errol Flynn’s mansion stood: formerly notorious for its two-way mirrors and voyeuristic hiding places, it had since burned down (the land is now owned by Justin Timberlake). On top of that hill it was as if they reigned over all of Hollywood.
An alternate version of this photograph was initially included in Raised By Wolves – a book in which I worked closely with and documented runaway teenagers on the streets of San Francisco and Los Angeles during the 80’s and 90’s.”
Statement by Jim Goldberg
“My work is based in trust. I don’t work well just snapping pictures, although some people would say the opposite. I really feel like intimacy and trust are the guide to my work.”
