Riley Goodman, raised in the Patapsco River Valley of Maryland, inquires folklore, American history, and humankind's relationship with the environments they inhabit in an effort to understand what endures, and subsequently how this endurance exists in relation to his own presence in the canon. Goodman juxtaposes archival imagery and material from his personal collections of artifact and ephemera with the visual interpretation of researched, often folk-based, storytelling. By establishing this crafted world, Goodman invites the viewer to question the tenets of authenticity, leaving the idea of "historical truth" in an undisclosed middle ground. Goodman’s work has appeared in Time, Vice, and Oxford American, among other outlets.
