Nan Goldin

http://www.moma.org/collection/artist.php?artist_id=7532

Nan Goldin is a different kind of photographer who takes powerful photos. Her work seems to give the viewer a peek into the intimate lives of her subjects (mostly her friends and family), exhibiting themes like love, gender, domesticity, and sexuality almost always shot with available light (natural lighting). The lighting adds to the intimate feeling behind her photos, also giving them a cohesive feel.

Her work is very intriguing to me. Perhaps because her images seem to elude to a somewhat dark background story.
