Ten Haaf Projects is pleased to announce “Under Amber”, a solo exhibition by
Born and raised in New York, Goldfarb has been shooting black and white film
with an analogue camera for the last 49 years. His passion for photography ex-
tends to processing and printing his own work. The title “Under Amber” comes
from the amber safelight in the dark printing room, a place Goldfarb always con-
sidered cozy and comforting.
Goldfarb was born in 1954 to Holocaust survivors. The suffering endured by his
family put him on a quest to document the beauty and sadness of everyday life.
This exhibition presents a selection of work from 1973 to 2014. While observing
scenes captured by Goldfarb, viewers catch a glimpse through his lens, getting
the sense of walking down a sleazy 1970s New York alley in one instance and, in
the next, feeling the idyllic summer breeze of Martha’s Vineyard in the 1980s.
For 10 years, Anders Goldfarb was an assistant to American photographer and
painter Saul Leiter, a great influence and source of inspiration for his work. Gold-
farb has worked on every aspect of the medium, from portraiture to street pho-
tography. Through it he deals with the underlying themes of irony, mystery, de-
cay, displacement and death. His subjects have led him to various places beyond
New York, including Mexico, Berlin, Budapest, Prague and Krakow.
Anders Goldfarb’s work has been shown in several important institutions, such
as the Museum of the City of New York, and the PS1 of the Museum of Modern
Art in New York. His work is featured in exceptional private collections. This is
his third solo exhibition at Ten Haaf Projects.
