Paul Cary Goldberg : Sense of Placement | Sense of Place

Paul Cary Goldberg’s photography is contemplative, investigative, poetic. And as such, is very much like the artist. Goldberg is soft-spoken, reflective, pensive -- qualities apparent in his photographs. His still lifes are patiently-composed, elegant and truthful, absent of sentimentality. They reveal the beauty inherent in the simple object -- bread, a seed, a flower stem -- as well as the inevitability of its decline.

His documentary work -- consider the series ’18 Days in the Land of Israel’ -- expands on Goldberg’s inquisitive nature, one that is grounded in respect for the subject. He is on a different path now. Kinship and estrangement collide as he encounters the ancient in the contemporary, repose within conflict, sobriety amidst joy. These works reveal the purposeful eye of a judicious artist.
