David Goldman: Going Home

At age 20, both “Kedija” and “Robe” lost a baby in childbirth due to inadequate health care. Thanks to missionaries, both women were collected from their respective villages and brought to Addis Ababa for treatment. This is a story of faith and love, both lost and found, in so many ways that I find it hard to fully explain. Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: it could have easily gone either way. I could have taken one road and shown pain and sorrow through images of woman suffering through the worst parts of fistula, or I could have chosen to focus on what can happen when the best parts of humanity are allowed to thrive. I took the latter. For me, there really was no choice.

David Goldman – Photographer

is a photographer, an investigator, a poker, and a prodder. He is most happy off the beaten path—in fact, being on the beaten path makes him a bit anxious.

David finds inspiration by watching people do whatever it is they do, then he likes to photograph them doing it.
David loves movies and creative people. Blessed with a very bad memory, he sees photos as a form of memory. He has been lucky enough to photograph some amazing people in his life, from musicians to actors to the everyman.
David is a proud Canadian, but has lived in the U.S. since 1994, from L.A. to N.Y.C. He loves hockey and actually believes his beloved Leafs have a chance this year. He also enjoys waterskiing, road biking, and Formula 1 racing.
Sometimes, you can find David on the subway laughing or crying out loud as he listens to The Moth podcast.
