Product Description

Review

"We all tell stories which are versions of history - memorized, encapsulated, repeatable, and safe. Stories can be rewritten, memory can't. If each picture is a story, then the accumulation of these pictures comes closer to the experience of memory, a story without end." - Nan Goldin

love her Oct. 20 2007
By Arienette Cervantes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The photo of the book here on Amazon does not do it justice. It is bound beautifully and is very sturdy.
Some of her best and most important images are here-Christmas at the Other Side, Nan and Brian in bed, Gotscho kissing Guilles, among others-some I haven't seen anywhere else.
The essay is also very personal. It reveals Nan Goldin more intimately than other books, exploring her intention to preserve the present by photographing...although ultimately, as she puts it, the photographs have shown her how much she has lost. The essay combined with the amazing photographs (printed on quality paper) creates an intense emotional environment.

Vendor does not respond to e-mails May 10 2010
By Jeannie Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Our university requires that we provide mailing addresses of vendors selling their products through places like Amazon. I contacted the vendor twice through the "contact this vendor" e-mail address, but never received a response. We won't be doing business with this seller again.
