More About the Author

Barry Goldstein is a photographer specializing in portraiture and documentary themes. Originally trained as a physician and biophysicist, he is Associate Professor of Medical Humanities at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and Visiting Professor of Humanities at Williams College. He was serving as the first Artist-in-Residence at the New York University Medical School on September 11, 2001, an experience that led to his collection "Being There: Medical Student Morgue Volunteers Following 9/11." (NYU Master Scholars Press, 2005.) His current project, "Gray Land. Soldiers on War" (W.W. Norton & Co., 2009), documents the faces and experiences of members of an Army brigade over two deployments to Iraq. He has also worked in New York City during the 2004 Republican Convention, and in New Orleans following Katrina. The intent of these projects is to examine different aspects of post-9/11 America, using both images and the subject's own words. Barry lives in North Adams, Massachusetts, and is married to novelist Andrea Barrett. His work can be seen at www.bgoldstein.net
