Contacts Vol. 2 – Nan Goldin

leave a comment »

Two years ago I attended a really interesting workshop in Rome, runned by Leonie Purchas, one of my favourite photojournalist. Besides the normal lesson, where the class discussed about their portfolio, talked about her work, completed two different assignment and edited all the picture for a final exhibition, she showed us a series of video called “Contacts”, a collection of small video where famous photographers show their contact sheet, talking about their work. One of this video was really touching for me and has made Nan Goldin, one of my favourite photographer ever.

From Contacts Vol. 2, Portraits of Contemporary Photographers:

Don’t miss the second part:

«The work has always been about the condition of being human and the pain, the ability to survive and how difficult that is». (Nan Goldin)
