NAN GOLDIN "JABALOWE AT HORSE SHOW, LUXOR" 2003
Nan Goldin (b. 1953) is unquestionably one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century.
In the 1980's she came to fame from documenting her social circle, characters often living on the margins of society, in New York City and beyond.
Goldin was the first to use the "slide show" format in a high-art setting and elevated the familiar snapshot into an art form.
A successor to Diane Arbus, her aesthetic and creative approach had a tremendous impact on both the medium and the art world.
In the 2000's Goldin's body of work has included more images of landscapes, interiors and objects. She has focused more on her travels, and the environments that are meaningful to her and her companions. Atmosphere, palette and location have take precedence over the intimacy of portraits.
In the early 2000's Goldin travelled to Egypt and created a series of work around her friend "Jabalowe" - this is one of the most striking and atmospheric.
