Open See began life as a Magnum commission for the Greek Olympiad in the summer of 2004. This project tells of the journeys of refugee and immigrant populations who travel from war torn and economically devastated countries, often leaving AIDS ravaged communities or totalitarian regimes to make new homes in Europe. Despite facing seemingly insurmountable difficulties, dreams of freedom and an indomitable will to survive are continual threads that tether migrants and refugees to their history and drive them forward toward a new life. Despite the harsh realities they endure, their stories are replete with hope and heroism. This immigrant population, including refugees, asylum seekers, and trafficked peoples, reside in compromised living situations, often on the margins of society. Open See is a body of photographic work that documents these diverse peoples who are natives of such places as Iraq, Somalia, Congo, Ukraine, Albania, Russia, Poland, Nigeria, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Egypt, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China, the Philippines, Sudan, Kenya, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Palestine, and Moldavia. While much of this project is specific to the socio-economic landscape of Greece and the plight of refugees who make Greece their new homeland, it speaks to larger issues and raises questions about racism and cultural persecution across the globe. Jim Goldberg, born in 1953, is a Professor of Art at the California College of Arts and Crafts and a member of Magnum Photos. He has been exhibiting for over 30 years and his innovative use of image and text make him a landmark photographer of our times. He began to explore experimental storytelling and the potentials of combining image and text with Rich and Poor, (197785). His work is in numerous private and public collections including MoMA New York and San Francisco, Whitney Museum, Getty Museum, Corcoran Gallery and MFA Boston. Co-published with Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris

Descripción U.S.A.: Steidl & Partners, 2009. Soft cover. Condición: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. Open See, the book and accompanying exhibition, both part of a still-ongoing project about what Goldberg calls the "new Europeans" – illegal immigrants, refugees, displaced people and asylum seekers from Africa, the Middle East and eastern Europe. Goldberg often encourages his subjects to write on the Polaroid portraits he has taken of them. (The title, Open See, comes from one man's assertion that "in the open see [sic] there is no border".) The result can be mundane or heartfelt or harsh, but is nearly always forlornly poetic. One Somalian man has scrawled the words: "I make 68 taka [$1] a day and have despair." Another states: "Don't have papers, I can't stay here, I can't go anywhere." This is the Kafkaesque nightmare of displacement captured in a few faltering words. There are several layers of sadness and longing in many of Goldberg's images and suffering of one kind or another seems to suffuse his portraits. Many of the young women he encounters have been trafficked and sold into prostitution. One of them has written: "I am a whore" above her portrait, her expressionless face at odds with the stark force of her testimony. In one of the longer testimonies that end the book, a girl called Beauty writes: "After seven years of this fucking life, the only thing left of my beauty is the name.".
