 Photographers Paul Cary Goldberg
Paul Cary Goldberg has been a photographer since the early 1970s. His work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Boston Public Library, Mellon Bank, Fidelity Investments and many private collectors. In a The New York Times review, Helen A. Harrison wrote that Goldberg's still life photographs of "Ripe fruit, flowers, seed pods and vessels that seem suspended in moments of maximum equilibrium...are flat out gorgeous." He is currently represented by Pucker Gallery on Newbury Street, Boston.

Some of his solo exhibitions include: Boston University, Boston, MA; Giraffics Gallery, East Hampton, Long Island; School House Gallery, Provincetown, MA; The Print Center, Philadelphia, PA; Southern Light Gallery, Amarillo, TX; and in March 2005, the Cape Ann Historical Museum in Gloucester, MA.

The proper execution of a still life photograph is a tenuous task at best. The various parts that need to come together to form an image that is truly great and can be compared to musical instruments playing in an orchestra; working together to create a harmonious piece of music that is pleasing to the ear. Even the initial step of choosing objects to photograph is a skill that few artists have mastered. The subsequent placement of those objects within the perimeter set forth by the camera's viewfinder is equally challenging, while the placement of the light sourc
e can cause the final image to emerge looking unbalanced, flat and not pleasing to the eye.
The photographs of Paul Cary Goldberg are the epitome of still life photography at its purest. Each object seems to have been deftly chosen by the artist to exist within a distinctly serene and undisturbed plane of space and his careful eye demarcates an area in which each object will rest elegantly in photographic perpetuity. As the artist gathers objects that make up the composition set forth by his mind's eye, he achieves a sense of unequivocal equilibrium: the ideal amount of visual interest without being overly inclusive of his beloved objects.
