From the Publisher
Eden and After is a new collection of photographs from one of the most influential photographers working today. For over 30 years, Nan Goldin has created intimate and compelling photographs that tell personal stories of relationships, friendships, and identity while chronicling different eras and exposing the passage of time. Here, Goldin presents photographs of children that capture the energy, emotion, and mystery of childhood. This beautifully produced book features 300 color illustrations and an introduction from Guido Costa, an art dealer and close friend of the artist.
"Goldin, true to form, captures situations that are far from what, in the days of analog photography, were called Kodak moments. Boredom, sadness, bashfulness, introversion, exhaustion, and confusion are all depicted, and in images whose formal and lyrical qualities draw from Goldin’s signature aesthetic arsenal, helps them float above the mawkishness you nervously expect to encounter with every page turn but thankfully never do. Goldin’s photographs, as ever, verge on the cinematic. Waves of emotion, movement, color and light wash over and through them. . . Instead of operatic photo–narratives that pit euphoria against disappointment and tell tales of loss and endurance, we get something sweeter, more appreciative, and wistful. . . And that is what makes this book, with its mix of beauty, appreciation, and apprehension, an unexpected page–turner." – Marvin Heiferman, Special to CNN "A hefty, heartwarming, tearjerking and LOL‐inducing love song to the kids Nan has been around. . . over the last 30 years. . . a love‐loaded book." – Dazed
