GOLDBERG, Jim. Open See.

(Göttingen): Steidl Verlag, 2009. First edition. Four volumes. Small oblong quartos. Goldberg’s acclaimed work on the “new Europeans” – illegal immigrants, refugees, displaced people and asylum seekers from Africa, the Middle East and eastern Europe most of whom live a clandestine life, unable to work legally or avail themselves of even the most basic rights. The volumes deploy various formats – Polaroids, photographs, video stills, found images and hand-written texts – to create a fragmented narrative that fractures the received conventions of reportage or straight documentary. Four volumes housed in the publisher’s printed card slipcase. A fine still sealed set.
