I Am My Family: Photographic Memories and Fictions

By Goldchain, Rafael (SIGNED) & Martha Langford (Essay)

New York : Princeton Architectural Press, 2008. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine +/Very Good+. A family album of traditional portrait photographs with an unconventional twist: the only subject is Goldchain himself. In an elaborate process involving genealogical research, the use of make-up, hair styling, costume, and props, Goldchain transforms himself into his ancestors and captures their personifications with the camera. Taking some liberties with historical accuracy, Goldchain assembled a cast of characters: from his short story-writing grandfather, to his great-aunts Pola and Fela, to the Rabbi Gur's nephew in wedding dress, Goldchain reinvents himself over and over again. These trace the evolution of Jewish culture from tradition to modernity and invite us to engage the history of a family decimated and scattered by the traumatic events of the 20th century. Essay by curator Martha Langford. Includes archival images & artist's handwritten sketchbooks. The Chile-born photographer of Polish-Jewish heritage earned a MFA from York University and a BAA from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute. He is currently Program Coordinator of the Applied Photography Program at Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Oakville, Ontario.
