Jim Goldberg has spent more than two decades creating the work that forms Coming and Going, a unique work of autobiography. Since 1999, Goldberg has been photographing his daily life through all its vicissitudes and returning to his studio to digest and narrativize these images through a practice of collage, annotation, montage, and reconstruction for which he has become renowned. Dissecting an individual life with rigorous candour and confessional directness, the book equally tells a wider story of the universal shape of our lives through their loves and losses, comings and goings, and the ways we come to understand them. Here we see an artist attempt-ing to confront mortality without melancholy. Familiar from cele- brated works such as Raised by Wolves (1995) and Open See (2009), Goldberg?s visual language employs sequence and narrative with feverish intensity to reflect the constant movement and mutability of life. History, memory, and imagination collide in this vividly material practice, to which the influences of fiction and film, and the book form itself, are central. Goldberg offers a fierce, vulnerable, and at times overwhelming accounting of a life in search of the elusive universals of personal experience ? one that constitutes his magnum opus and a significant contribution to contemporary bookmaking. 


Jim Goldberg (b. 1953) has been exhibiting for over thirty years. His innovative use of image and text make him a landmark photo-grapher of our times. He is well known for his willingness to establish in-depth and long-term collaborations with marginalised social groups, resulting in critically acclaimed projects such as Rich and Poor (1977?85), Raised by Wolves (1985?95), Open See (2003?10) and Candy (2015?17). His work is in numerous private and public collections including MoMA, SFMOMA, Whitney Museum of Art, The Getty, and LACMA, among others. Among the many awards Goldberg has received are three National Endowment of the Arts Fellowships in Photography, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Henri Cartier-Bresson Award, and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.
