Biography

Trained as a scientist at Harvard, David Goldes uses photography as a way to explore scientific phenomenon. In his close-up images of reflections, bubbles, fire, and electricity, which often call to mind scientific diagrams from earlier centuries, he finds joy and wonder in the mysteries of the physical world, presenting these simple concepts as vehicles for understanding perception, memory, and the process of discovery. In the series “Traces” (2005/9), he explores object and memory by creating ghostly impressions of objects that directly reference the work of Paul Cézanne—still life arrangements of apples and pitchers rendered in transparent mesh material.
