Jim Goldberg was born in New Haven, Connecticut, and has been working with experimental storytelling for over thirty-five years. Among his most well known projects are Rich and Poor (1977-1985), Raised by Wolves (1985-1995), Coming and Going (1996-present), Open See (2003-2009), and Candy (2013-2015). His practice documents the complex ways people struggle when social or political circumstances work against them. He has been awarded three NEA grants, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Henri Cartier-Bresson Award (2007), and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize (2011). He is represented by Pace/MacGill Gallery in New York and is a member of Magnum Photos.

Blade at the Beach is a 26-page PDF. With a home printer, regular letter-sized paper, scissors, and a little tape, anyone can transform these pages into a single 40×50 inch poster. Detailed instructions are included in the file.

Blade was one of the main characters in Goldberg’s Raised by Wolves, an innovative multi-media project that documented the lives of street children in Hollywood and San Francisco over a ten-year period. Combining hand-written notes, photographs, texts, videos, personal effects, and audio transcripts, the project retells the myth of Romulus and Remus with cinematic scope.
