ANDY GRUNDBERG
Facts cling to photographs like dust. - Andy Grundberg

....images exist not to be believed, but to be interrogated. - Andy Grundberg - p. 273 Crisis of the Real: writings on photography since 1974

In terms of style, both artists favor the candid and unplanned over the technically polished and precise -- which is not to say that either is incapable of remarkable images. Both approach photography from the perspective of film, seeking to open the medium's gates to narrative through sequencing and editing. As a book, the Americans is cinematic in structure, and Goldin's slide show, with its screen and sound, closely replicates the experience of moviegoing. But the most profound similarity between the two artists is their emotional immediacy, and the degree to which they express torment and pain. - Andy Grundberg - Critic Andy Grundberg made some notable comparisons between Frank's work and Goldin's in his 1986 essay "Nan Goldin's Grim Ballad".
