Tribute to Nan Goldin
In 2001, I discovered the work of Nan Goldin in a retrospective organized by Le Centre Georges Pompidou (Le feu follet, Paris, 11th October – 10th December 2001). An aesthetic shock. Hypnotized, I went to the exhibition several times to watch and re-watch photos and slideshows. Since then, the Nan Goldin’s work became a new impetus for my personal works, changing definitely my way to consider the purpose of capturing our lives with a camera.
