I have been told, several times, that money doesn’t buy happiness, but that it helps. My experience tells me that the two things may not be related, or that they may be like flesh and bone.
Some days ago I saw these photos by Jim Goldberg, in Magnum’s archive. The album is called Rich and Poor, and it shows us real stories of American people in the late 70’s and 80’s. In each Polaroid, Jim asked the models to write about their lives, or simply about their thoughts at the time they were seeing the photo.
The photos are naked. And naked are the thoughts.
