“Fireleap is Nan Goldin latest slideshow, displaying images of children from 1978 until today, most of which have never been shown. Children, primarily for their state of freedom and natural innocence, fascinate Goldin. They make their own rules, living in a free zone utterly their own, like beings from another planet. Photographing the children of friends, as well as her Godchildren, Goldin offers a view of their raw emotions ranging from wildness to melancholy. Fireleap captures a consciousness while it is still unbound by societal boundaries”.
