Exhibitor History

Vivien Goldman
Chestnut Hill, MA USA

I was a large format black and white photographer for many years, influenced by the f64 aesthetic of the West Coast photographers. Ansel Adams and I grew up, decades apart, within a few city blocks of one another, and looking at his photographs and those of friends and contemporaries put me in mind of home. I now have lived in New England for almost 40 years and my aesthetic and vision has changed, far away from the West coast mountains and ocean where I began. I am now drawn in the opposite direction, shooting often with limited depth of field, blurring backgrounds and edges, focusing close on details, on the ocean at ebb tide or left lying scattered and forgotten inside abandoned structures, the remnants of lives as they once were lived.
