Jim Goldberg - Blade at the Beach, a 40 x 50 inch poster you can print at home

Presented by SFMoma, Jim Goldberg's Blade at the Beach is a 26-page PDF which with a home printer, regular letter-sized paper, scissors, and a little tape, anyone can transform into a single 40x50 inch poster. Detailed instructions are included in the file. Blade was one of the main characters in Goldberg’s Raised by Wolves, an innovative multi-media project that documented the lives of street children in Hollywood and San Francisco over a ten-year period. Combining hand-written notes, photographs, texts, videos, personal effects, and audio transcripts, the project retells the myth of Romulus and Remus with cinematic scope. Follow this link HERE to view a riveting 7 minute video all about Raised By Wolves.
