PETER EMANUEL GOLDMAN

Peter Emanuel Goldman born in New York in 1939 made several films in the sixties. He worked as a journalist and a writer of international affairs. He has recorded a song and has written a book. His photos, which miraculously reappeared after 50 years in a box sent from Paris, resemble his films to some extent and differ in others. The photos were mostly made at the time he was shooting the movie Echoes and in the year following, before making Pestilent City, The Sensualists, and Wheel of Ashes in Paris. Film and writing are his main areas of expression, but photography are also very important and are a reflection of him. Peter has three of his pieces at Amerant.
