Nan Goldin (is an incredible photographer) has unleashed a new photo project to a certain amount of acclaim.  It's called "Scopophilia" which roughly translated means something like "the love of vision".

Scopophilia is in the Louvre and Matthew Marks Gallery, but unless you're at one of those to exclusive places you really can't see much of the show.  Who knows why.

From what I understand Nan was given free rein to photograph in the Louvre (lucky so and so) and then took the photos she made of other people's art in the Louvre and paired them with either new(?) or old(?) photos of her own to "make the art come alive".

It's all very deep and involved if you really look into it.  All I know is that it is some of Nan's best and most beautiful work to date.  Rock on sister cuz!
