Note from the Editor

Candy/A Good and Spacious Land

This exciting and much-anticipated new release, produced in a lavish two-volume set, juxtaposes two photographers’ perspectives on the city of New Haven. Jim Goldberg and Donovan Wylie began their projects during a joint residency at the Gallery in 2013 and completed them over the course of the following years. In Candy, Goldberg, a New Haven native returning to a city he left four decades earlier, focuses on New Haven’s people and their stories, making intimate, informal portraits and collages often presented alongside the subjects’ own words. In A Good and Spacious Land, Irish-born Wylie examines New Haven’s topography with an outsider’s eye, focusing on a massive highway system—much of it still under construction—as a compositional framework for viewing the cityscape and its inhabitants. Each volume includes text by writer and attorney Christopher Klatell, J.D. 1999, and Laura Wexler, Professor of American Studies, of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and of Film and Media Studies at Yale University, which was written in collaboration with the artists and reflects on the photographs’ symbolism, social import, and historical contexts. Candy/A Good and Spacious Land offers a vivid and multifaceted portrait of the city that the Gallery calls home.
