i really enjoyed reading this article on Jim Goldberg’s recent project open see, although you could say his style of photography is documentary i think the way in which he involves the subject though the process of taking the photo then allowing them to become more part of the image by writing onto the image their own personal thoughts and feelings, opens the image up giving more of a 3D substance to each photo taken. i felt when looking at more of his images in this project not so much thinking about the subject he was photographing illegal immigrants but becoming more interesting in the personal views and messages put across by there added input therefore making the images to me stronger and have more of an impact.
When considering my work i may reflect on this series again and draw inspiration from the way he does get the photographed subjects to draw and add too the photo.
