Fantastic Tales: The Photography of Nan Goldin (英語) ハードカバー – 2005/10/30
Over the last thirty years Nan Goldin has achieved international fame as a photographer who, building on the tradition of Robert Frank and Diane Arbus, chronicles the lives of outsiders. In Goldin's case, those outsiders are her friends and acquaintances, the inhabitants of a bohemian demi-monde where divisions between gender and sexual orientation are blurred. Tenderness is coupled with a brutal honesty only possible through the empathy that exists between photographer and subject. Instead of concentrating on the documentary aspect of Goldin's work, as many previous authors have done, Jonathan Weinberg examines the way in which her photographs operate as 'Fantastic Tales', each containing the seed of a story for the viewer to explore, including many iconic images, as well as more recent forays into landscape photography. Produced in a luxuriously bound, eminently collectable edition, this is a fitting tribute to one of the masters of the modern-day photographic image. --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。

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.
