Proof is printed in an edition of 1,000. Ten of the 1,000 zines come with a "golden ticket" that is redeemable for an original polaroid taken by Jim Goldberg. (Limit 10 copies per customer; limit one prize per individual.)
From Jim Goldberg:
“In 1971, he began Variable Piece #70 (In Process) Global, for which he proposed his intention 'to photographically document the existence of everyone alive..'" -- excerpt from Douglas Huebler’s Wikipedia page.
What started as a 77 image collage titled “Contact”, Proof has grown into an archive of over 600 images (and growing). It is my attempt to assemble a “family album”; a catalog-raisonné of all my photographic encounters during the past 9 years of this project.
On one level, this piece illuminates my working/editing process and how I use markings and notes to make sense of what I've shot. On a completely different level, this work describes the way I conceptually address my subject— while both the words ‘Contacts’ and ‘Proof' are photographic terms used to describe a set amount of images or quickly made prints—I use these technical terms to illustrate that these are people who I had contact with, while Proof perhaps certifies the existence of these people who would otherwise be invisible.
