Jim Goldberg documented his daughter Ruby from the first day of school all the way to graduation at college, taking one photograph on the first day of school every year. I love this work as it shows the transformation of Ruby and the way the work has been put together in a collage really makes you feel like you are looking back into someones life. Goldberg arranged next the the images of Ruby drawings she did that day and the clothes she wore. Goldberg used this opportunity to create something more than just photography, he created a very personal historical document using different materials to really show what Ruby got up to in her school life.
Goldberg uses available light for all of the images in this story, probably to show exactly what everyday was like, if he used artificial light it would not give the same effect when looking back in context of an archival record of her life.
This work has really inspired me to do something similar such as document someone or maybe my own life while at University...
