Candy/A Good and Spacious Land

Photographers Jim Goldberg and Donovan Wylie were on press in mid-May with their upcoming two-volume publication Candy/A Good and Spacious Land, which juxtaposes their perspectives on the city of New Haven. Goldberg and 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. 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 two writers—Christopher Klatell and Laura Wexler—that 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.
