Love through the Lens of a Great Woman Photographer - Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day!! With A little love from Nan Goldin.
In keeping with our Great Women Photographers
obsession theme this week.. Whenever we think of Hugs and Kisses.. No female photographer has done it better than Nan Goldin.. So while everyone knows her most famous "The Hug" image.. here are some of our other MAO favorites.. from NAN.
Photo # 1.
Valerie and Gotscho Embracing, Paris, 1999
Valerie and Mel Maternal Embrace, St Remy, France, 2002
Simon and Jessica in Bed, faces half-lit, Paris 2001

And then there's always this classic from her amazing book, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.

It's very impressive how many great loving embrace photo's Nan has managed to make over the years. I love them all.
FYI.. There's a current show at Matthew Marks Gallery of early Nan Goldin's work.
The Show runs through April 14th.
