Rafael Goldchain Interview — Photography podcast #29

This pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast‚fea­tures an inter­view with teacher and fine art pho­tog­ra­pher Rafael Gold­chain. In the inter­view Rafael tells us about his past work and we delve into his lat­est work called Famil­ial Ground.‚This work‚contains over 50 mas­ter­fully cre­ated self-portraits based on Rafael’s fam­ily his­tory and the influ­ences of the dif­fer­ent cultures‚that help make up his‚life. Rafael freely talks about how the project came to be, as well as all the tech­ni­cal ele­ments of the project includ­ing; light­ing, shoot­ing, print­ing and dig­i­tally post pro­cess­ing the photographs.

    Amazing…I am just surf­ing a bit and decided to google Rafael…can’t believe the info avail­able. What can I say…Rafael is mar­ried to my sis­ter (older than me) and I am so happy to be able to call him my brother-in-law. I know how hard Raf works and it is evi­dent in every task he under­takes. I’m very, very proud to know him, never mind that I am actu­ally related to him. Good for me!

  2. C. Goldchain says:

    I was look­ing for stuff on my fam­ily and I didn’t real­ize that my uncle was inter­viewed in a pod­cast. I’m really happy that my Tio Rafa was able to be in your pod­cast and that you guys really liked it!

  3. Norm says:

    Awe­some inter­view! I’m a new lis­tener, I started lis­ten­ing a few weeks ago and finally got caught up. I am new pho­tog­ra­phy and so I appre­ci­ate how you’ve kept it fairly sim­ple yet still very infor­ma­tive. Unless it has been done before I’d love to hear a pod­cast about your rec­om­men­da­tions as to what equip­ment would be a neces­sity for new pho­tog­ra­phers (types of lenses,etc.).

    Thanks again!

  4. Al says:

    Great inter­view! I never heard of Raphael before and lis­ten­ing to this pod­cast has inter­ested me in his work.

  5. Bekka says:

    Wow these pho­tographs are just amaz­ing. Great pod­cast, thank you. The infor­ma­tion was really in depth and I loved lis­ten­ing to Raphael’s process from start to finish.
