JIM GOLDBERG
[b. 1953] American artist and photographer
There's a thread that runs through all the work that is to do with bearing witness. The photographs are about asking questions, though, not answering them. - Jim Goldberg

[A photograph] is a part of the evidence. I’m not saying it’s the truth—it’s part of the evidence. - Jim Goldberg

Before I even took pictures I knew that I wanted to have them as hard copy memories. - Jim Goldberg

There are many images which I miss on purpose. I’ve done too many of them before and photographing them again doesn’t change the world, or me. - Jim Goldberg

The photograph is kind of a proof—a proof that I actually met these people, that they actually have lives, and that they’re worth considering. - Jim Goldberg

I have the great privilege of being both witness and storyteller. Intimacy, trust and intuition guide my work. - Jim Goldberg
