Happy to see my street photography featured on Mutantspace!

"John Goldsmith’s street photographs take us into the theatre of life, his pictures a complex world of light and dark, reflections of disparate lives all caught up in a single place, rushing past, intersecting, a community in transit.”

A studio session and then a book reading with my client and novel author Ari Goelman [PHOTOS].
Client and Author Ari Goelman in the Vancouver studio of John Goldsmith Photography. Last night, author Ari Goelman gave a reading of his new book The Path of Names to an energetic crowd at Vancouver's Kidsbooks. I was on hand to take event photos for the introduction of his novel.

Several years ago, I was commissioned to photograph Metro Vancouver residents for the Vancouver Foundation‘s 2010 Vital Signs project. These are a selection of the portraits. Of course, thank you to everyone who let us into their lives and shared their stories.

Odd that it's even here. Seems it uploaded automatically from my phone even though I turned that off that "feature." Anyway... this is a wall in my studio. A truly remarkable concrete wall.

+Mark Dodge Medlin Thanks for the response. I wish Joerg's response, which I thought was fair, was also too measured and simple seeming. Deleting a photo is one of the possibilities in a confrontation and, while altruistic, it   doesn't necessarily further the art, which he also wants. What I tried saying is, to a certain degree, Colberg is correct but there it's more complicated. One can be conscientious and still keep all of their photos, IMO. I'd rather advocate other ways of working than taking the easy way out. But above all else, photographers need to try and understand what they are doing. Regardless, the public, many of whom are not photographers in a serious sense, even if they carry a camera, won't understand our philosophical/artistic ideas. G-d help those without cameras...
