Picturing Love, photography’s pursuit of intimacy

This exhibition at Katonah Museum of Art (USA) was inspired by Nan Goldin’s The Hug (1980), a striking image of two people embracing in a dark corner cast in shadow by the flash of the camera. The powerful gesture of the image, and other equally compelling pictures of people holding, hugging, waiting, and gazing, and otherwise, are enacting their own forms of intimacy.
