Nan Goldin’s use of color is what originally drove me to her work and her astonishing ability to capture intimate moments has keep me hooked.  Goldin’s life is full of sorrow, with her sister committing suicide and a majority of her friends dying of AIDs/HIV, Goldin captures those around her beautifully giving them a wonderful homage.  Unlike many other artists, Goldin exhibits her work in slideshow form, speaking to her audience giving them the stories behind the photographs.  I find this to be a great way of showing your portfolio, espically when the image are so intimate.  More images can be found here, but please be warned the images can be explicit.
