In Conversation With Jim Goldberg In San Francisco

Jim Goldberg will be in conversation  at SFJAZZ Centre with New York Times culture reporter Randy Kennedy on February 25th at 7pm.

"Over a career spanning nearly four decades, Jim Goldberg has chronicled the social divide in highly acclaimed books and exhibitions that document runaways, refugees and the socio-economic chasm in America. He began to explore experimental storytelling and the potentials of combining image and text with “Rich and Poor” (1977-85), where he juxtaposed the residents of welfare hotel rooms with the upper class and their elegantly furnished homes to investigate American myths about class, power and happiness. A landmark photographer of our times, Goldberg was named the first SFJAZZ Photographer Laureate in 2012 for the 'unflinching, hard bop musicality' of his pictures. Hear him discuss his body of work in this conversation moderated by New York Times culture reporter Randy Kennedy." - SFJAZZ Centre
