This unflinching, often shocking photographic portrait of teenage runaways in Los Angeles and San Francisco forgoes both the critical distance of the cautionary tale and the banality of the morality play. Instead, Goldberg forges a more personal, and therefore more horrifying, path. His photographs portray in numbing detail the lives of a loosely knit group of young people, as they shoot heroin, turn tricks, and show off their tattoos. Though photographs dominate the book, a significant portion is devoted to text: interviews, confessionals, and even reproductions of the subjects' writings and drawings. Goldberg is friends with his subjects, and in interviews they refer to him by name. He gets involved with their parents and social workers with varying degrees of success. Goldberg's work, completed between 1987 and 1993, will be exhibited in conjunction with the book's release and will tour the United States until late 1997. One complaint: many of the photographs bleed into the gutter, making them harder to view; a little border would have made a difference. Still, this group portrait is highly recommended for art photography collections.?Adam Mazmanian, "Library Journal"

A large-format book about runaway and thrown-away kids, Jim Goldberg's Raised by Wolves sets new standards for documentary photography. Developing approaches employed in his landmark 1985 book Rich and Poor, Goldberg spent months on Los Angeles and San Francisco streets photographing and interviewing his adolescent subjects. Interviews with social workers, police and, most of all, with the adolescent subjects themselves lend dimension to this harrowing picture of American street life and the adversarial institutional culture surrounding it. At the book's heart lie two brilliant but doomed adolescents, Tweeky Dave and Echo; their sad romance lends enormous emotional impact to the book. (Scalo/D.A.P., dist.; Oct., $45 ISBN 1-881616-50-9)
