I have a feeling that hells-a-comin' for this, but I can't see what it is about Nan Goldin's work that makes her so revered. I admit I am drawn to her books whenever I hit a bookstore, but always put down her books very puzzled as to what the allure is. Photographers I don't like right away often grow on me. This has happened to me with photogs like Sally Mann and Cindy Sherman to Eggleston and Sternfeld. My tastes are quite diverse - I can't think of any genre I don't enjoy. What am I missing about Nan Goldin? Are there any fans on APUG?
