I highly recommend this book if you appreciate fine art photography. It's amazing how Rafael plays the part of his family and by using a large format black and white film camera, it really brings this work to life.
You will love this book.

By Joyce on March 16 2011
Format: Paperback
Although I could clearly have an immediate bias, independent of my connection to the author is the wonderfully unique way in which he has approached and defined the concept of genealogy. Who says history, or history in the making, can't be fun? Rafael Goldchain's creativity and expertise have led him, and his masterful work, around the globe--this exhibition and the hard copy that evolved from it in the form of I am my Family are evidence of his exclusive, yet inclusive, look at family stories and personalities, Old Country and New World, wealthy and raggedly poor, domestic and professional. I am my Family is at once a story, and many stories, told through layers of research, concept development and fruitful result, and the simple desire to know one's roots in history. I highly recommend this book! Well done, Rafi!

Fabulous - mature - engaging - enjoyable!!! Oct. 31 2008
By horsedesigner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The care and attention to the details in the text, the images, the reproductions, the production notes, and the historical references are fabulous!!!

The book is an intimate look into how a true artist thinks, processes, develops and completes a project. As a graduate level photographic educator Rafael's book is an ideal example for MFA students who aspire to developing a world class thesis.

This book shows how photography and digital imaging can be used hand-in-hand to create inspiring images.

I will treasure this book for year's to come.

By Emilio Goldchain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I FIND THIS TO BE A FASCINATING BOOK.
THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE VERY IMPRESSIVE, BRINGING NOSTALGIC FEELINGS.
IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THE CREATIVITY SHOWN BY RAFAEL GOLDCHAIN IN IMPERSONATING HIS ANCESTORS IS OVERWHELMING.
BY THE WAY, RAFAEL GOLDCHAIN IS MY ELDER SON.
