5.0 out of 5 stars Exhaustive !!, 23 Feb 2007
As the above review says this is an extensive collection of Nan Goldins work. The quality of the book and reproduction is up too the usual standards of Phaidon releases and will not disapoint.

Nan Goldins confessional style is displayed well. The majority of the images work best viewed as shown here as part of a total work, not many work as stand alone images.

The themes are exhausting, I felt as though I was being dragged into her life and felt physicaly drained but couldnt stop.

A moving experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Presented, 31 Dec 2006
The history and critique of Francescas work is well presented as are the reproductions of her work.

Anyone interested in the Gothic interpretation within Photography should own this book.

She died young taking her own life at just 22 and although some of her early images naturally could be classed as jouvenalia it is quite clear how her own questioning style was developing. This book presents this well within the context of Photography at that time.

purchase this book you will not be disapointed with the content and quality.
