From 1977 to 1985, Jim Goldberg photographed impoverished and wealthy residents of San Francisco, creating a visual document that has since become a landmark work. Goldberg's portraits are combined with the subjects' handwritten self-observations. These remarkably frank statements reflect highly personal feelings about self-image, family, hopes, and fears, in a manner that highlights the two economic classes' similarities as well as their differences.

Rich and Poor established Jim Goldberg’s reputation as a transformational figure in the history of documentary photography. This work constitutes a shocking and gripping portrait of America that remains just as relevant today. The representation of poverty is at once political and personal, revealing as much about society as it does about the person who documents it. But what is universal, is that the stories are never just about poverty; they are about powerlessness, prejudice, stigma, suppression and a myriad of other complex structures of suffering.
