Empty Places : Abandoned Spaces | Directors Choice
Empty Places : Abandoned Spaces | Exhibition Dates: January 19th, 2018 to February 17th, 2018. Directors Choice, Tim Goodman. Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed. The past continues to live in these forsaken, ruined, or empty spaces and we ask— Who were the people who lived and worked here? What were their lives like? What were their stories? What happened to them in these spaces? The work of our Directors Choice award winner, Tim Goodman, epitomizes both the formal and conceptual elements of the theme in a compelling and unified group of images.
Tim Goodman grew up in California and came of age in England. He returned to California, graduating from UC Berkeley, where he studied 20th Century American Art. Inspired by the work of Lee Friedlander and Robert Adams, Goodman began taking pictures in 1982. His photographs can be found in numerous private and public collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Palm Springs Art Museum.
