Randy H. Goodman
The Kowasa Gallery is presenting a series of prints from a pair of distinguished photographers with two very distinct approaches to their camera work.
Flashback Iran: 1980-1983 delves into the archives of American photojournalist Randy H. Goodman, whose travels to post-revolutionary Iran enabled her to document the aftermath of the 1979 Revolution that saw the collapse of the Iranian monarchy. Despite relations between the US and Iran, Goodman managed to gain rare access to war zones, where she witnessed the plight of refugees, soldiers and prisoners of war. Her famous photographs chronicle the social and political changes that Iran underwent and capture the everyday lives of its inhabitants in a period of turmoil.
In Pretèrit imperfet, rather than using images to depict a gritty reality, Barcelona-based photographer Ares Molins i Masat questions the veracity of photography by using an analogue camera to construct representations of life. This collection of her prints explores ideas and memories as construed by photographs, and symbolise the power of photographic illustration to present fiction as fact.
