this book is truly inspiring, im a photography student looking to go into portrait and fashion photography and i must say i was in shock at how amazing some of the work this book has to offer is! she uses light so well to bring out some amazing textures and the macro pictures are breath taking!, this book is a must own for any serious portrait photographers! Elinor Carucci obviously has a very close family and it shows how much she truly cares for them in a moving way!
this is an amazing artist and an amazing collection on images!

Palpable vulnerability 19 Feb. 2005
By photogogue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Technically splendid and affecting photography from a major new talent. Carucci brings a Nan Goldin-esque virtuosity to her chronicle of the intimate spheres of self and family.

simple yet powerful book 7 Aug. 2003
By A. Dan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this book's simply moving, it's shows with very simple direct photos a very deep look into the artist's life and her realtion to family, lover, husbend, freinds and her own body. it manage to creat the exsact right tention between personal and univesral, makeing you feel as if the people shot in the photos are both extrwamly indevidual and at the same time iconic - as if the most perosnal emotions we have are a part of something larger.
someting that personaly intrest me is the sense of imaigrent in her photos showing very israely people and scenes combined beautifuly with that europian light and places.
it's one of the most moving photography i have seen.

Wonderful work! 5 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book. The photographer managed to tell a beautiful story about the web of relationships in her life. I envy the simple and talented way she presents her life and the people she care for. I am sure that we will hear more about this raising star in the art of photography
You can't get much closer than this. 22 Dec. 2013
By photobook_reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Elinor was relentless when photographing her family, her partner and herself. The color images are punchy and beautiful. Close up details of veins or the close up indentation of a zipper mark on the skin are in sharp contrast to the intimate moments in the bathtub with her partner or photographing her parents in their bedroom. Everything is out in the open in this book. You can't get much closer than this to intimacy, to family, and to life.

Great work! Carucci does a great job showing you a world that is hidden from us. We can use this book to get just a taste of another's experiences.
