Watch “Nan Goldin – ‘My Work Comes from Empathy and Love’ | TateShots” on YouTube

Goldin known for her intimate diaristic style of photography had a HUGE impact in modern photography, her unflinching honesty won the hearts of many!!! She is most certainly one of my favourite Artists! Photographers had been using their experiences in life as a way to inform their work, but it was Larry Clarks ‘Tulsa” which was so raw and graphic that it had brought Goldin to the realisation that personal stories could be relevant in an artistic way. Golden is one of Americas most influential photographers, her candid snapshots and aesthetics influenced many many photographers all of the world.
