The Artist Project: Nan Goldin presents the work of Julia Margaret Cameron
As part of the series “The Artist Project”, produced by the New York MET, Nan Goldin presents the work of photographer Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879).
In this interview, Goldin acknowledges that Cameron’s work was never to her liking, until she rediscovered the spirit of her work, especially the recurrent use of the “out of focus” technique that at the time was labeled a technical error. On this point, Goldin compares Cameron’s work and her own, and explains that “errors” generate new readings.
Similarly, Goldin highlights the importance of Cameron’s effort to photograph women displaying gestures, emotions, and postures, none of which was allowed in her era. “This is a celebration of love, which for me is the greatest thing that art can do,” Goldin concludes.
Over the course of six seasons, “The Artist Project” has presented the views of more than 120 artists, who selected individual works or whole galleries at the MET in order to share their meditations and inspirations across 5,000 years of art.
