Morning at MoMA

A few photos from a visit to the Museum of Modern Art.

In all my journeys to New York over the past 20 years, I actually never made it inside MoMA until a friend told me a bit about photographer Nan Goldin and her work. What a fantastic show of her work and some other artists from around the world!

 Some images from Nan Goldin's "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency". While I normally hate taking photographs of another artist's photographs (without people in the foreground), the pairing of the middle one (Self Portrait One Month After Being Battered) and the one on the right (Heart Shaped Bruise) took my breath away. The slide show, which she originated in the 80's and was playing in an adjoining room, carried just as much weight and was quite stunning.
