"Fortunately, with Nan Goldin's photography, a certain kind of critical caution is entirely unnecessary. Nan and her photographs form a single whole, and those who look at them, ... in that moment when they really understand them, become irresistibly drawn into their world; they are interrogators, but at the same time, are being interrogated. The spectator must to some degree become an active participant in the taking of the picture, reconstructing what went before and the circumstances in which it was made. In other words, he or she must, for a brief moment, agree to become part of Nan Goldin's extended family....rite of mutual recognition." Goldin 's work often breaks social taboos with its explicit exploration of relationships, sexuality, and eroticism. More recently, her images have shown the devastating effectgs AIDS has had on this community of friends. Illus., 56 color photographs. 128 p. Read more Show Less

Overview

Nan Goldin is internationally recognized as one of today's leading photographers. Her photographs have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, including SFMoMA, San Francisco, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Museu Reina Sofia, Madrid.Born in Washington DC, Goldin grew up in Boston where she began taking photographs at the age of fifteen. She has since lived in New York, Bangkok, Berlin, Tokyo and Paris, amassing an extensive body of work that represents a fascinating photographic portrait of our time. Since the 1980s Goldin has consistently created images that are intimate and compelling; they tell personal stories of relationships, friendships and identity, but simultaneously chronicle different eras and the passage of time. Her 'snapshot'-esque images of her friends -drag queens, drug addicts, lovers and family- are intense, searing portraits that, together, make a document of her life. Goldin herself has commented on her photographic style and philosophy, saying, 'My work originally came from the snapshot aesthetic ... Snapshots are taken out of love and to remember people, places, and shared times. They're about creating a history by recording a history.' Her work often breaks social taboos with its explicit exploration of relationships, sexuality and eroticism, and has also shown the devastating effect AIDS has had on her community of friends.Through its sequence of 55 images, Nan Goldin presents an overview of the photographer's entire career, and illustrates the development of the intimate and raw style for which Goldin has become internationally renowned.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
55 is a new series of beautifully produced pocket-sized books that acknowledge and celebrate all styles and aspects of photography.

Nan Goldin is a major figure in the contemporary art world. She is most famous for the long-term photographic record of the lives of her and her friends, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency. She calls this "the diary I let people read." Her work comments frankly on all aspects of the lives of her immediate circle, the main themes being relationships, sexuality, eroticism, and the problems of alcohol and drug addiction. More recently, her images have shown the devastating effect AIDS has had on this community of friends. Her work is by turns disturbing, poignant, and celebratory.
