A new podcast from Photo Ethics features photographer Melissa Groo discussing empathy with wildlife. (We’ve featured Groo’s work and comments on ethical wildlife photography previously.) “More and more I come to realize there are so many shades of grey, you know, it’s such a nuanced topic,” notes Groo. “And also that none of us are perfect.

The San Diego Union   Friday April 30, 2021

Portfolio: Nan Goldin's Quarantine Life

AnOther   Friday April 30, 2021

Nan Goldin has been documenting her life since the 1980s, and, like memories, her images are “raw and unstaged, infused with emotion, abstract flourishes and fuzzy details,” notes AnOther, which features Goldin’s newest project, made during the covid-19 pandemic. The work is on view at New York’s Marian Goodman Gallery as part of a larger Goldin exhibition. The subject of most of the photos is Goldin’s friend and muse, the writer Thora Siemsen, who encouraged the photographer to start re-documenting her personal life.
