Portrait images and domestic scenes from Mauritania of Halpoular, Moor and Wolof peoples, mostly women; some children and men. All the images are captioned by the photographer and include the subjects names as well as the region, date and activity. The more noteworthy images include Moor women preparing wool for weaving (nos. 37, 38, 39), girls playing a game of "golorgal" with playing board clearly visible (no. 34), and a wooden tablet with verses from the Koran (no. 19). As a documentary photographer, Ms. Goodsmith focuses predominantly on the lives of women and children in developing countries. Her images—chiefly from North and West Africa, Egypt and India—are on file with the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef), The Image Works, and Johns Hopkins Photoshare, and her portraits from a series done in Kashmir are in the photographic collection of the Brooklyn Museum. All of the images of this photographic collection are originals. Ms. Goodsmith works chiefly with Communication for Change, a New York-based nonprofit organization that has developed participatory video projects in collaboration with community groups.
