Jeremy Goldberg is my newest discovery in the photography world, and I am completely obsessed with his work. I love the viewpoint he shows in his photographs and the stories that he tells with them. Most of all I love how he describes his photographs as almost "too personal to share." His ShoeBox collection in his website is my absolute favorite, but I am also amazed by the way he can capture celebrities and make you feel so connected with who they are.
"The ShoeBox series is a distillation of that feeling. The name comes from people who would keep all their favorite 'non-framed' images in a shoebox. It's not the family portrait over the mantel, it's all the images that they treasured - that had sentimental value. That almost feel too personal to share, except with a few select friends late at night, possibly with a bottle of wine and a long reminiscing conversation."
"I think the best photography or movies or any kind of storytelling pulls you in and *makes* the story real - even if only for a moment."
"I love shooting actresses and musicians is not just because of what they do, but because of who they are. They're not only interesting looking people, but often are more emotionally vulnerable, which is not what people imagine. Most people don't expose their emotions the way an actor or actress is required."
I was so excited when I saw that he shot a music video for one of my favorite artists and songs. However, I was so surprised when I watched it because I have never before felt so connected to a song. He has such an incredible way of pulling you in and making you feel like you are there, experiencing the same emotions as her.
