Jon Goodman.  Northampton, Massachusetts, 2015

As a young man Jon Goodman set out from the United States for Europe to learn photogravure printing.  At the time of his journey in the mid-1970s the practice of making flat plate gravures had all but disappeared.  After years of travel and trials in Europe and the United States, Goodman began printing work by some of the greats: Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Dorothea Lange and Paul Strand. I sat down with Goodman in his Northampton, Massachusetts workshop to talk about his travels in Europe, working on photogravure with Richard Benson and working with Michael Hoffman at Aperture.
