“HARD-HITTING AND AFFECTING”: SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF RAISED BY WOLVES, SIGNED BY JIM GOLDBERG

GOLDBERG, Jim. Raised by Wolves. Zurich, Berlin, New York: Scalo, (1995). Quarto, original stiff photographic wrappers. $850.

First edition of Goldberg’s powerful photobook, boldly signed by him on the title page, a work that pioneered “a new kind of concerned, personal photojournalism” (Village Voice), featuring 177 striking black-and-white and 53 color photogravures.

In Raised by Wolves, “Goldberg makes a complex and thoughtful photobook about teenage runaways” that intersects photographs with “his views and theirs, adding their thoughts from interviews, their handwritten musings on scraps of paper, the snapshots they carry… The result is a collaged photobook, rich in incidental material, that emerges as a multi-layered and ambiguous document… This is a hard-hitting and affecting book” (Parr & Badger II:303). Produced over a decade, from 1985-95, Raised by Wolves “pioneered a new kind of concerned, personal photojournalism—one that closed the distance between the artist and his subjects… filtered through the you-are-there sensibilities of Larry Clark and Nan Goldin” (Village Voice). Scarce first edition, published in conjunction with exhibits (1995-96) at Washington’s Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, and the Zurich Museum of Design. Authored in collaboration with Philip Brookman.

Interior fine, lightest edge-wear to bright wrappers. A scarce signed copy in about-fine condition.
