Format: Hardcover
Nan Goldin has been producing intimate and sometimes confrontational images of her circle of close friends for many years and her body of work grows as time goes by. This book by Phaidon serves as an excellent taster to the type of images Goldin produces. Her work is raw, intimate, sexual and, at times, unflinchingly horrific.

Before you write her off as a peddler of pornography I urge you to view this book, the images taken of her friends as the menace of AIDS reared its head are genuinely moving. We see Goldins close friend 'Cookie', first marrying her lover, then burying him and, a scant two months later, lying in a casket herself. Birth, growth, hope and death are all displayed sensitively in an intensely moving set of images that will make even the stoniest of hearts beat in sympathy.

Goldins work can be discomfitting but it can never be accused of being dishonest.

I recommend this book as a worthy primer to her work.

The Book was not as good as I was led to believe it would be, although the photos were very good as per Nan’s exceptional standards, there was too much writing and not enough photos. I was also surprised at the size as I obviously missed the size of the book (if it was given) and surprised by the very loosely termed “Photos of Nan’s family”.

I should have read the reviews, hence the low star rating so that others will actually notice my review. The book is very small! Comes with a big sticker on the front saying 'Pocket sized', shame that's not on the pic'. Really disappointed as the content is beautiful, warrants a big book and higher price tag.
