Rafael Goldchain is a well-respected Canadian photographer. He was born in 1953 of Polish-Jewish heritage in Santiago, Chile and educated in Jerusalem, Israel before moving to Toronto. He earned a Master of Fine Arts at York University (2000) and a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Photographic Studies at Ryerson University (1980).

Goldchain’s roots in Chile and México drew him to work in México and Central America in the 1980s and 1990s. This prolific period yielded works that enlisted portraiture and personal documentary to stage a vision-from-exile of diverse lands and cultures convulsed by conflict and rapid change.
