Nan Goldin: Fireleap

  • Posted 88 months Ago

Legendary fine art photographer Nan Goldin recently opened her new show, entitled "Fireleap" at the Sprovieri Gallery in London's Mayfair. The exhibition features a series of landscapes as well as a number of images of children, taken between 1978 and today, revealing the artist's fascination with their freedom and natural innocence. All the images on display were previously unseen: "They have been my secret work metaphors for loneliness… (I was) trying to break the glass between the outside world and me. I had lived in a dark space for 15 years so the landscape was unfamiliar to me, a fascination with an unknown world outside".

The exhibition opened on 24 June and will be running through 6 August, 2011.
